Quilt Challenge

2022 Birthdays and Other Beginnings Challenge

It’s time for a new Challenge! September is PQ’s 44th birthday, and we’ll admire the Challenge quilts and vote for our favorites at the Guild Birthday Party on Sept. 21. A birthday is one kind of a beginning, but not the only one. This Challenge invites you to create a quilt that commemorates the birthday of our Guild, other birthday(s), or any other beginning that inspires you.

Your project must be a quilt, and you must use a recognizable amount of the challenge fabric somewhere on the front of your quilt; binding is OK. There is no size requirement, although I would point out that, like the last challenge, this fabric would make a wonderful baby quilt. I expect there will be a category for this Challenge at the 2023 San Mateo County Fair so whatever you make, I hope you keep it until then.

Entry fee (as always!) is $5/fat quarter. Fabric is available from Jess Millikan – email jbmillikan8@gmail.com or phone me to pick it up in person, or send me $5 and I’ll mail or deliver it to you. I also have some extra yardage, which I will release after everyone who wants a fat quarter has one. That will be first come/first served, $20/yard.

* Photos to Jena Walter by Sept. 1 for the on-line slide show

* Quilts delivered to Jess Millikan by Sept. 19 (or contact me and I’ll pick up your quilt from you).

* Deadline for electronic voting for those unable to attend the September meeting TBA.
* Quilts displayed and winners selected at the General Meeting on Sept. 21.


All entrants will receive a “Wanda Ribbon.” You’ll vote for your favorite quilts, considering

creativity, workmanship and anything else you value. The first, second and third place finishers will receive goodie bags and gift certificates toward a PQ workshop of their choice.
