Thank you to all members for taking part in this challenge!
In honor of our quilt show this year, the challenge quilt I’ve picked is a really easy pattern, but the results should be outstanding! So let’s get started.
All quilts will only have the above items. There is no fancy work except for the outside border. There will be absolutely no appliqué or embellishments. All 4 patch blocks must be set on square and not on point. So, at our regular meeting next February 2017, only quilts pieced, with NO applique’ and NO embellishments, quilted with the binding done will be entered for judging.
Remember: The quilts will be judged on color choices and the fancy outer border. No hanging sleeve is required.
So let's all get started and have some fun. Happy Stitching!
PS There are some great books out for pieced borders as well as infinite ideas on line.
