2023 Challenge Quilt

Signup for the 2023 Quilt Challenge is still open!
All participants will get a Fat Quarter of the same fabric. The challenge is to use some of it, some way in the quilt. You can use a sliver or the entire fat quarter, as long as it is recognizable. Quilts can be up to 144″ around the perimeter.

The reveal will be at the September meeting. Cost to participate is $5.00. (This pays for the FQ and underwrites the cash prizes.)
Your entry must be finished — that is, quilted, bound, and labeled. The label can be sewn on, or sewn in, or written on, or just fused on.

– Cover the label (use a square of fabric and pin it over the label.
– Write your Artist’s Statement on a 4 x 6 card to include the name of the quilt and any design notes (inspiration source, a special technique, whatever). Pin the card to the front of your quilt. Do not put your name on the card! Gotta keep everyone guessing!
BY SEPTEMBER 1 let us know if you will have a quilt for the display: challengequilt@nlcqg.org
The voting is simple. All members who attend the September meeting get a ballot and choose their 1st, 2nd and 3rd favorites. 1st place votes are worth 3 points, 2nd place votes 2 points, 3rd place votes 1 point. The highest number of points wins.
