New Challenge

Sue Hardy

Definition of "challenge": a stimulating task or problem

So, what is a quilt challenge? Generally, a quilt challenge consists of a theme and a set of rules. Each participant creates their own project that fits those rules and theme. Challenge projects tend to be small and quilters approach a challenge from many different angles. Perhaps this is a chance to try a new technique or conquer an old technique you feel you have never mastered. It may require the use materials or colors that you would not normally choose. Creativity can run wild to fit your project to the theme. Most importantly, it is a chance to have fun and maybe go a little 'out there'

2019 FDQ challenge - Citrus Colors

It was a gray dreary winter and a soggy spring. Hopefully this challenge will chase away the blahs since it uses bright citrusy colors of yellow, orange, red, green and white.

The Rules:
⦁ Make a 12 1/2" quilt block. You can pick any pattern .
⦁ You must use the fabric that is provided at the April meeting. If you missed it, there will also be some fabric available at the May meeting.
⦁ You may add any other fabrics as long as they are yellow, orange, red, green or white. No other colors are allowed.
⦁ Make as many blocks as you want. Pin your name to each block when you turn it in so you can be entered into the raffle.
⦁ All blocks should be turned in by the June 2019 meeting. We will have a raffle and someone will win all the blocks.
