20th Anniversary Challenge Results
The rules were as follows:
- Size – The quilt may be any shape, and I mean ANY shape, but the sum of all sides must not exceed 140 inches.
- Technique – Any quilt making technique may be used, however, this is a challenge and I encourage everyone to challenge themselves and step outside their comfort zones to try something new.
- Every quilt must contain at least two of the following items representing gifts appropriate for a 20th anniversary. The interpretations of those items are totally up to the imagination of the quilter.
Nine fabric works of art were submitted for the challenge.
The voting results were counted.
First prize was #4 Cathy Coster
Second place was #5 Mary Pruitt
Third-place tie between #2 Haley Kelley and #8 Mary Foster.
The workmanship and creativity in using the four components in the guidelines drew applause from those in attendance.
