The Brown Bag Challenge
As quilters we don’t often have anyone making things for us. With that in mind, I thought we would do a little something different for the President’s Challenge this year which I hope you will enjoy.
If you are anything like me you will have collected a few fat quarter’s since you started quilting. I don’t often like to use mine, just occasionally take them out of my plastic containers I keep them in and admire them. This is your opportunity to use three fat quarters out of your stash and have someone else make something out of them just for you.
At the October 10th meeting, bring your three fat quarters inside a bag (plastic will do) together with the form (link below) with the information filled out. At the November 14th meeting, you will be given someone else’s fat quarters (plain brown bag will be provided to ensure anonymity) to take home and create something. You are free to add fabric or other accessories depending on what you are making. What will you make? A table runner? A tote? Or perhaps a wall hanging? The possibilities are endless. The completed projects will be returned at our May 8th meeting when you will receive back a finished quilted something, and you will find out for whom you have been making the item. That’s right, you won’t know who you are quilting for until the “Big Reveal”.
- You must use a generous amount of each fat quarter.
- There must be some quilting done on the item.
- The returned project must be completed.
