The year is 2020, soooo, the Challenge:
What’s Your Vision? Contact: Challenge@northernstarquilters.com
Here are some inspiring thoughts on Vision:
Setting new goals for yourself? Reaching a goal? A dream? An inspiration??
Sticking to a resolution? Moving? Winning the lottery?
Changing careers? Starting a business? Retiring?
Entering our Show? Winning a Ribbon at our Show? Trying something new?
Creating the perfect garden? Got an upcoming event? Paying it forward?
Getting glasses? Having cataract surgery?
Make it real or make it a fantasy. Make is serious or make it playful. Express yourself. Let your Vision shine. The options are endless for creativity, imagination, design and construction. But, most important, HAVE FUN!!!!!
1. The quilt project must consist of 3 layers, back, top and batting all stitched together and quilted by hand or machine and created by one maker. 2. The choice of fabrics, colors, threads and embellishments and quilting are all up to you. 3. The quilt can be constructed in any form you wish, i.e., paper piecing, traditional pattern, appliqué or your own pattern. Or, this could be a perfect opportunity to try something new! 4. Don’t forget the sleeve for hanging and a label. 5. The quilt size MUST be 24 inches square.
