Yearly Challenge


You are invited to make a Christmas quilt.

You are encouraged to find a new and interesting way to interpret the Christmas spirit.

It can be funny, beautiful, inspirational; modern, traditional or art.

The challenge is to use any color combination EXCEPT red and green.

  1. You may use either red or green but not together. That means no Christmas fabric that is red and green.
  2. Minimum size 160” perimeter. You could make a wall hanging, lap quilt or something of your choice.
  3. Must be quilted and. bound or pillowcase edge.

We are charging a $5 fee to enter and that will be the Grand Prize. 2nd and 3rd places will receive ribbons.

Participants will be asked to bring their completed quilts to the Christmas Party on December 7th where the show and viewer choice judging will take place.

Sign up at a guild meeting with Marilou; pay with cash or check.



2022 President’s Challenge

Definition of a challenge:  

Noun: 1.      A call or summons to engage in any contest, as of skill, strength, etc.   

2.      Something that by its nature or character serves as a call to battle, contest, special effort, etc. The 2022 President’s challenge is to make a 12-1/2 inch block using fabrics of my choosing.  This challenge is totally voluntary. You are under no obligation to participate, but it could be a lot of fun.  An opportunity to get creative and try something new. The cost to participate is $2.50 and challenge fabric kits will be available for purchase starting at the Birthday Party in August.  You may add up to 3 additional fabrics and use any block design you want, however the challenge fabrics must figure prominently in the design of the block.  Other than that, there are no rules.  The entries will be displayed at the Holiday Party in December.  Viewer’s Choice will determine the winners.  1st, 2nd, and 3rd place cash prizes will be awarded.  The more participants, the higher the payouts.
