The Incredible Cow Challenge
This year’s quilt challenge is about having fun using wordplay, colorful fabric and embellishments. The challenge is our response to Mary Lou Weidman and Melanie Bautista McFarland’s challenge to quilt makers to use their cow pattern with the theme of your quilt included in the border. Each quilt should disclose the quilt’s theme through the word “cow” or “moo” or other identifying word, e.g., “PanamooCanal,” “Moo-opoly,” and “Cow Mooni Kate.” The adapted pattern (to a smaller version) is on our website under Special Events – Challenge. Each member is limited to one challenge entry.
It is time to begin thinking about our annual Super Saturday event on February 27, 2016. This is always a well-attended, fun day in the middle of the winter. Samples and Sign-ups will be available at our November Guild Meeting. You can register for a class or for a day of “Sit and Sew”. Lunch will be provided.
