Challenges
The President's Challenge 2017

Pick any country in the world.  Make a quilt that depicts one or more
things that are associated with that country.  For example: foods,
famous buildings, etc.  The catch - the quilt can only be made with
the colors that are in that country's flag.  So a quilt about the USA
could only have red, white and blue in it.  The quilt should be no
larger than 24"x24".  Have fun!


Due at the November meeting!

Decide what aspect of [hohl] strikes your fancy and make a 24 inch

the list above or your own interpretation.  Any technique, any style
as long as it can pack flat.

This is a multi-guild challenge sponsored by Undercover Quilters in
Brookhaven, PA.  The quilts will hang at Something Wonderful 2018
in Springfield PA and then will then travel to each of the participating
guilds for displace at  a guild meeting.  After their travels, they will
be returned to their creator.

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place voted in a Viewer's
Choice collected across all showings.

Quilts are due by our January meeting.
