Guild Quilt Challenges for 2024 Show

Basic Guidelines:

The perimeter size of the quilt can be no more than 150” and a minimum of 6 participants in any one challenge is needed for them to be displayed as a challenge display at the 2024 quilt show.

The five challenge options are:

Challenge #1 – A Song Title with a ‘color’ in it

Examples include Tangled up in Blue, Yellow Rose of Texas, Red Red Wine, Raspberry Beret, Purple Rain, Paint it Black, Behind Blue Eyes but you can choose your own.

Challenge #2 – Gradient Play Challenge

A challenge to use the Gradient Play piece from the workshop we had in October 2022 with Chris Lynn Kirsch.

The size limits of this quilt may be changed in order to accommodate the full “Gradation Play” piece created at the workshop. Ch

Challenge #3 – Transparency Challenge

Transparency Challenge: Transparency quilts are designs in which the maker has carefully placed blocks of color within the quilt to give the illusion of the overlapping colors blending together to create new colors. (Similar to the effect seen in plaid fabrics.) Look this up online for further explanation.

Challenge #4 – Specific Fabric Challenge

Specific Fabric Challenge: Must use a specific piece of fabric supplied by the guild.

Challenge #5 – Sunday Morning Sun Challenge

Sunday Morning Challenge: Similar to one of the suns shown on the CBS Sunday morning news program or pick your own.
