1- Each paint card contains three colors. All three colors must be used and be easily recognize in the finished quilt. Print fabrics which are predominantly the chip colors are allowed in addition to neutrals such as white, beige, gray, or black---or whatever you want to call a neutral.
2-Theme: Basket/s-- there are many different basket blocks. Your quilt may be pieced or appliqued. It may feature one basket or multiple baskets.
3-Size: The finished quilt must be larger than 12 inches on a side, but not exceed 30 inches on a side.
4-The original paint card must be displayed along with the finished quilt for voting.
5-The quilt must have a top, batting and backing (3 layers). Any quilting method may be used. The quilt must also be bound, and have a label.
6-Deadline for completion of quilt is the October Guild meeting (October 12, 2017) where members will vote for their favorite one. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners
will be recognized.
20 people bought a chip, and 10 people turned in completed challenge quilts.
2. Kathy made this cute pink and black basket. love the prairie points!
3. The pretty green was made by Jackie. I think she did a great job matching her greens.
10. These baskets were made by Donna. Her beige/gray paint chip was tough, I loved her use of the eggplant as her neutral.
The winners were chosen by the guild. They were supposed to choose 1, 2, and 3rd places. I then tallied the total votes.
1st place was Judy's truck.
2nd place was Karen's purple basket
3rd place was Jackie's green basket.
I was so impressed with everyone's creativity. I have some interesting ideas for next year unless someone else wants to take over.
