Quarterly Challenge

QUARTERLY CHALLENGE – A challenge is when you take the instructions and interpret them and incorporate them into a project you.create.

President’s Quarterly Challenge…due Sept. 30
At the last meeting I had three challenges for members to choose from to try and encourage more participation.
We had a winner, but it was decided that we would leave all three, and members can choose one of the three.
You must use all the elements within one of the groups. We had 14 votes, so I expect at least 14 items for
“Show and Tell” next month.
Challenge 1 – One solid background fabric, 1 appliqué (any style) and completed project, ready to be given as a gift.
Challenge 2 – Log cabin block(s) any style, fussy cut center, quilted with colored thread.
Challenge 3 – At least one 1” square, a polka dot fabric and a print fabric for binding.
Start your creative engines, play with your fabric and let’s make something

July Challenge Entries:

We will begin a quarterly challenge to include everyone….quilters who love to quilt, but not necessarily who enjoy piecing blocks. A challenge is when one takes the instructions and interprets them and incorporates them into a project you create.

Start months: July, October, January, and April. Finish date is prior to the next starting month.

July Challenge – floral, brown fabric, a triangle, quilting stitches and a finished edge. NO SIZE restriction. Be creative.

Examples: – a brown floral fabric cut into a triangle with meander quilting and binding – a flower made of triangles with a brown stem with a quilted flower on the background; the edges stitched and trimmed with pinking shears. – Hawaiian quilt – brown background, white flower with echo stitching and finished as a pillow. Below is an example of what I made.

Post a photo of your challenge project on the Hawaii Quilt Guild Facebook or email it to me to post. I will select a name from all the entries for a prize Photos due NLT 30 September 2020. Have fun! Just another way to get involved and be creative! ~~Barbara Rubio
