2022-2023
Quilters' Guild Acadienne
Challenge

 

THEME: “Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink”

 

Your creation does not have to look like an ocean, lake or river. Use your imagination. It can be over the water, under the water, by the water, indoors or outdoors, real or imagined, fun or serious. Maybe it’s rain or a pool or the fabrics or the blocks you use choose that speak to you. The challenge shall be presented at the June general meeting.  The entries will be collected at the February 2023 meetings, day and evening.  The membership will vote on all of the entries at the March 2023 meetings and the awards presented at the April 2023 meetings.  

Have fun and be creative!

 

BASIC RULES OF THE CHALLENGE:

  • #1 RULE: HAVE FUN!!!

  • Use your imagination! Your creation can be traditional or contemporary. Item Selection: We would like your challenge to be a small quilt or wall hanging, not a tote bag, pocket book, vest or jacket.

  • Methods of Construction: You are free to use whatever construction or quilting methods work best for your creation (i.e., machine piece, hand piece, paper piece, applique, etc.). We encourage you to challenge yourself. Your creation can be as complicated or as simple as you like.

  • Quilting Requirement:  The entry must be quilted by hand, machine, or combination of both or tied. It must have a binding and a label.

  • Finished Size: Finished size is your choice, but no smaller than 12” and no bigger than 120” outside perimeter/circumference (i.e., square, rectangle, hexagon, or circle, etc.). For example, a square that equals 120” would be 30”x30”.

  • Fabric Requirement: There is no limit to the total number of fabrics or kinds of fabrics used.

  • Embellishments: Embellishments are optional.

  • Hanging Sleeve: The quilt back must have a hanging sleeve.
