Quilt Challenge

Barb Gardner: Colorado Sunshine

Each year a challenge is given for our guild members to produce a quilted piece to show at our annual meeting in April. Our Challenge is not limited to large quilts.  In addition to bed and lap quilts, small wall-hangings, table covers, bags, and garments can be included.  The only requirement is that it be composed of quilted fabric. The theme each year is different. Past challenges featured grunge fabrics, Clue characters, Alice in Wonderland, 2-color selections, John Denver Songs, and Black and White with one color.

Challenge 2024 

Challenge #1–DOORS

This quilt just needs to incorporate a door! It can be the “door to your heart”, a pathway leading to or from a door, or anything you like. You are welcome to take this in any direction you choose.

Challenge #2–UPCYCLE

Take any fabric that had a previous life as anything and include it into a quilt, wall-hanging, bag, you get to choose.  This can be a T-shirt quilt, ties, baby clothes, well-used tea-towels–ANYTHING.  It does not have to consist SOLELY of upcycled fabrics but should include some.

We will present our materpieces at the April 2024 meeting.
