President’s Challenge 2022/23

This year’s challenge is to take a common saying and
make a small wall quilt. There is a catch – you must
pick your saying blind from a box full provided by Lyn,
but if you are dismayed by your pick you are allowed a
second chance. Remember to keep your saying a
secret! We will vote for viewer’s choice

1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes

Size – no larger than an 84 inch perimeter, but not
too small. e.g. 20 x 17 inches, 23 x15 inches

Quilts should be quilted, bound and labeled and
ready to hang – add the saying to the label.

Due: April guild meeting and then for the quilt show
in June (registration for show due in March).
