Quilt Challenge

Barb Gardner: Colorado Sunshine

Each year a challenge is presented for our guild members to produce a quilted piece to show at our annual meeting in April. The theme each year is different. Past challenges featured grunge fabrics, Clue characters, Alice in Wonderland, 2-color selections and John Denver Songs.


“What Makes Me Smile” Challenge 2022

After considering a number of themes suggested by our members, the Board has voted on “What Makes Me Smile” as our 2022 Guild Challenge Theme.

The Challenge Quilts demonstrated what makes participants smile (behind those masks) and represented those feelings through fabric.

Our Challenge was not limited to large quilts.   In addition to bed and lap quilts, small wallhangings, table covers, bags, and garments were created.  The only requirement wasthat it be composed of quilted fabric.  

Challenge quilts were showcased in our April  2022 Show and Tell.  There were 47 items from our members who choose to share their personal joys  during our meeting!  Click here to see the 2022 Challenge Quilts
