WHAT IS A PRESIDENT’S CHALLENGE?

What is the President’s challenge?

The President’s Challenge is a challenge issued by our guild president to all members to make a quilt with certain defined parameters.

Why a President’s challenge?

We issue a challenge to inspire creativity in our members. So we learn to think and design. So we learn to take an idea and make something of it. So we learn to create and not just follow a pattern.

Where will we share these Challenge quilts?
As in years past, our Challenge quilts will be dispayed at the April meeting . They will be placed or pinned on the stage wall, viewed by all attending members who vote on their favorites. Since 2017 is also our guild’s quilt show in June, we will also hang all challenge quilts at the show for everyone to admire.

Who does the challenge?
All of the members are encouraged to make a Challenge quilt. All skill levels: beginners, experienced, professionals. Make it a group quilt, just try it, be creative. This is not a contest. The quilts are not judged: they are admired for their creativity.
