Challenge Rules - A Reminder

Happy New Year!
The countdown is on. Our quilt show will be here before we know it. I hope to post regularly about the show. Today I'm sending a reminder about our show challenge. Have you been thinking about this.? Perhaps you have already started or even finished a piece. I hope so. If not, it's certainly not too late.

Right now our focus is on publicity. We want to get the word out about our show. Members - let us know if you have any ideas along this line. We have bookmarks and posters ready for the printer.

Quilt Show Challenge
Theme - Stars of My Patriotic Heart

The Rules ~
  1. The size of the completed piece must be no smaller than 10" x 10" nor larger than 40" x 40". For example: your piece could be 10" x 40".
  2. Follow a patriotic theme with your country’s colors (USA - red, white and blue - CANADA – red and white) in shades desired. For example off white or cream is acceptable.
  3. Please use stars and/or stripes somewhere in the construction.
  4. Your piece can be appliqu├ęd, pieced, painted, beaded, colored, etc.
  5. Your entry must be hand or machine quilted and bound.
