Advent Exchange

Back by popular demand, we will once again be hosting the Advent Exchange. Participants make 12 small items and purchase 12 small items to swap. These items are turned in at our October meeting, swapped out and wrapped by the coordinator. Boxes with the 24 swapped out items are returned to participants at our November meeting to be opened starting December 1st. Sign up at any guild or UFO event or by contacting advent@nlcqg.org.Want the fun to continue? Look for the announcement of our ‘12 days of Christmas’ block kit swap at our May meeting!

2023 Challenge Quilt

Signup for the 2023 Challenge is still open! Everyone 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. That’s 36” x 36” but you could make it 5″ x 67″ or 52″ x 24″ — or just 12″ x 12″. The reveal will be at the September meeting. Cost to participate is $5.00. (This pays for the FQ and underwrites the cash prizes.)
