Presidents' Challenge for 2018: A square foot garden

For this year's Presidents' Challenge, think about what is in your garden. What do you see? One magnificent flower? A beautiful flower bed? Pots of flowers lining a staircase or hanging from a balcony? Are there dragonflies? An old fence rail? Children on swings? A cat in the sun? A view of the starry sky?
Use your imagination to come up with an original way to express this theme, and you can use any technique, machine or hand, traditional or art quilting.

The quilt needs to:

  • be 12"x12"
  • have 3 layers - top, batting, and back
  • be quilted
  • have binding or be faced
  • have a sleeve or rings for hanging
  • be identified with a label including quilt name, quilter's name, 2018 Challenge, and credit given for any pattern used

A maximum of 3 quilts per person will be accepted. You could create a triptych or 3 individual quilts.

Quilts are due at the May 2018 meeting and will be judged by the Guild members present - a viewers' choice ribbon will be awarded.

The quilts will be kept by the Quilt Show committee as part of a challenge group show in September 2018 and again be part of the viewers' choice ballot.

You decide beforehand if your quilt is for sale or to be picked up at the end of the show (details closer to show time!)
