I am the current president of my local quilt guild and as president, I issued a challenge to our members back in February, 2020.  Below is the challenge and quilts from participants.  The fabrics they were given were prints from my Signature collection with Island Batik called Lemon Grass.

 

St Cloud Heritage Quilters President’s Challenge 2020

I’m a numbers person.  By that I mean that I constantly seem to have numbers running through my head.  I tend to count how many pieces I have yet to sew, how many pieces there are in each block, how much longer it’s going to take me (in minutes/hours) to finish the binding, etc.  And that’s just numbers I think about when I’m quilting!  So my quilt challenge to SCHQ members had to be about the numbers – 2020.

The rules for this challenge were:

· The quilt must finish at 20” x 20”.

· The quilt must contain the two fabrics provided (fat 1/8th yards) and you must add two other fabrics (to represent the “2”s in 2020). 

· The quilt must have at least two circles or “0”s somewhere on it (to represent the “0”s in 2020).  These can be appliqued circles or circular shapes, circles in the additional two fabrics, or part of the quilting design.

· The quilt must contain 2 (and only 2) different quilt blocks.  You may have as many or as few of these 2 blocks as you want, but you can’t have more than 2 different quilt blocks.

Thanks to all who participated!  Members may vote on their favorites (see the newsletter for details) from November 22nd - December 6th.  I will update this page on December 7th with the names of the quilters and the winners.
