Like a Good Challenge?
Participate in the Chairperson's Challenge to learn new patterns and inspire creativity.
Chairperson's Challenge Quilts are small projects designed by the Board Chairperson or Challenge Committee to encourage a bit of friendly competition and stretch our imaginations. Parameters might include color and size, shape, embellishment and fabric. Deadlines are usually a month or two from the starting date and the challenge sometimes includes prizes.

Holiday Blocks - Christmas Traditions
With permission from the designer, Debbie Roberts, our member,
Joanne Granum presented Chino Valley Quilters members with a new idea: a challenging Holiday Block of the Month quilt based on Debbie Robert's Christmas Traditions pattern.
There are presently nineteen members signed up for this project and we are excited to see the finished products. We have completed three blocks and will do block number four this month.
See our monthly blocks here.
Each month, participating members receive instructions to make one block and a variation of it, for a total of two blocks per month. There will be 32 blocks total, plus a center-focus block. The center block may be done in either hand or machine appliqué. Joanne provided each member who signed up with complete instructions for making the first two blocks. Cost for the pattern is $1 per month. We can't wait to see the beautiful holiday quilts when completed.
