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
