How about a Challenge or two or three?
The Whisper Challenge is back!
Make a wallhanging inspired by the creation of the previous month’s quilter. The first quilter will start by selecting an image from an array of photos provided and making a wallhanging inspired by that photo. His or her creation will go to the next quilter who will make a wallhanging inspired by that creation. And so on and so on and sew on. See Becki Leavitt if you are interested. The BIG Reveal date will be the June meeting.
Architectural Inspiration Challenge
Make a quilt inspired by a photo provided to you. This challenge is NOT about an exact replica of the image….Let the picture inspire you to be creative through its colors, patterns, line or theme. At the May meeting, we will have the BIG Reveal. See Monique Fontaine if you are interested.
Holice Turnbow Panel Challenge
Holice distributed mystery panels (the same panel for each person) and the challenge was to create a quilt that resulted in the original panel being unrecognizable. Completed quilts were brought to the April meeting and what a display it was!
Quilters Winter Brunch
Anne Covino, with help from Monique Fontaine, once again coordinated a very fine Quilters Brunch held on Sunday, January 28th, 2018, at the Leicester Country Club. Thanks, Anne and Monique, for making the day special and lots of fun.
Cathy Starr once again coordinated a mystery quilt. Every few weeks, participants received a clue in the mail and saw the quilt grow in pieces until the whole quilt was done. The BIG REVEAL will be at the May meeting.
