Bits N Pieces Quilt Guild 2022 Challenge

Cindy Pfotenhauer, Coordinator

Theme:  Create a quilt that reminds you of a favorite children’s book. Choose one you enjoyed as a kid or a favorite to read to your children or grandchildren or any child in your life.
Completion date:  Quilts will need to be submitted to me by the middle of May 2022. I’ll set up drop off/pick up places and times as we get closer. They will be displayed at the June meeting.
Size:  any size up to 24” edge.  If you choose to make a circular quilt, then the diameter is no larger than 24”. I will entertain other size requirements if anyone would like to discuss it with me before the November meeting.  I want this project to be an easily doable size.
Prizes: Yes, of course!!  Attendees at the meeting will have the opportunity to vote on some categories.  I’m hoping we can enjoy the quilts and guess the books they were based upon.

Other requirements:

  • Your quilt should be 3 layers and quilted in some manner through all 3 layers.
  • Some kind of finished edge that holds the 3 layers together at the edge (may be a raw edge)
  • Be mindful of copyright requirements. Do not create a direct representation.
  • Embellish your hearts away.  Paint fabric, add beads, make it 3-dimensional.

 Fun! Fun! Fun!  I’m really hoping for high participation. So many great books we’ve all enjoyed through the years.  Let’s have fun with this one!!
