A Quilt Guild in Frenchtown, NJ
Is it the pearl in an oyster, a string of pearls, a lovely pearlescent color, or a pearl of wisdom? However you choose to use the word, incorporate a pearl into your challenge quilt to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Courthouse Quilters – our pearl anniversary.
Ribbons will be given in three categories:
1) Quilt of any size.
2) Quilt that measures 30” x 30”.
3) Other (“Other” may be – but is not limited to – clothing, fabric sculpture, home décor item.).
The quilt must be made between November 12, 2017 and April 8, 2018.
You will be given a paper label to fill out when you bring your quilt.
You will be asked for this information:
1) Did you design the piece yourself? If not, who was the designer?
2) Did you quilt the piece yourself? If not, who quilted it?
If your quilt has a label, cover it with a piece of cloth.
Bring your quilt in a pillowcase or other closed bag.
The CHQ Library has issued a challenge. Take any book or ruler out of the library and make something. It can be a quilt or table runner, a quilt top, a block, or a practice piece on which you learn a technique. It can follow directions exactly or just be inspired by them. Bring what you made to "show and tell", along with the book or ruler, and show membership what you learned. The challenge starts now and runs until next year.
Check out our Library's online catalog! (rulers included too)
“Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose”
For this challenge some - or all - of the top of the quilt must have once been part of something else....for instance, a glove, a pocket, a piece of jewelry or broken jewelry, a tablecloth, the buttons from a jacket, teabags, gum wrappers.....you got it! Be creative! There is no size limit.
The quilt must be made between December 11, 2016 and April 9, 2017.
You will be given a paper label to fill out when you bring your quilt to the April meeting. You will be asked for this information: 1) What item or items on the piece are recycled? 2) Did you design the piece yourself? If not, who was the designer or inspiration? 3) Did you quilt the piece yourself? If not, who quilted it?
If your quit as a label, please cover it up with a piece of cloth.
There will be FIRST, SECOND, and THIRD place ribbons in three categories. Quilt with repurposed fabric, Quilt with Repurposed Non-fabric items, and Other (including clothing, bags or other fabric items that would not lay flat like a quilt). You may enter one piece in each category.
