CHALLENGE QUILT for 2018

”Houses” was the theme for 2018.

The “Spring Barnes and Noble Show” on March 17th AT BARNES AND NOBLE BOOK STORE  LOCATED AT 2451 PATTERSON ROAD, GRAND JUNCTION, COLORADO was a grand success.  Thanks to all who participated in this Challenge. 

 

Our  “Deck of Cards”  was our challenge for 2017.   Did you miss it?   The quilts will be displayed at the Mesa County main library from July 6 thru August 29.  Please come and enjoy the display.   This challenge was to create a 16″ x 22″ Card with a theme from a deck of cards that you randomly chose.  The result was that there will be a display of the “52” cards from a “Deck of Cards”

SSQ Members will need to complete a  display agreement with Mesa County Library.  Click here to get your form.
