2021&2022 - Put a Heart on It
These are certainly challenging times for all of us. As quilters’ we are all amazing. Let’s concentrate on kindness and heartfelt actions we have witnessed or heard about over the last few months. So much of our heart and soul gets quilted into our work. Let’s show it and send an inspirational message of hope, love, support and kindness.
Maybe you heard one of the many heartwarming stories that resonated with you. Maybe you are one of those stories. Maybe you need to heal. Let’s concentrate on the positive. Your quilt can be serious or amusing. Express yourself. It’s your story to tell. The options are endless for creativity, imagination, design and construction. But, above all, HAVE FUN!!!!!
Any ????, just ask.
There must be at least one heart on your quilt. You can certainly have more.
The quilt size must be 30 inches square.
The quilt must consist of 3 layers (back, top and batting), be quilted by either hand or machine, and created by only one maker.
The choice of fabrics, colors, threads and embellishments and quilting, are all up to you.
The quilt can be constructed in any technique you wish, i.e., paper piecing, traditional piecing, appliqué or collage.It’s also the perfect opportunity to try something new! It’s your choice.
Don’t forget the sleeve for hanging and a label with your name and quilt name if you choose.
