We had a great turnout for our magazine challenge in May 2021 with at least 25 quilts being shown. Stay tuned for more pictures, more stories, and a showing at the Mesas to Monuments Quilt Show April 8-9, 2022, at the Grand Junction Convention Center!
Magazine Quilt Challenge
It’s not too late to create an entry for this Challenge!
See Judy A for a magazine and page numbers at any general meeting. Be sure to keep the magazine cover, your page, and a brief write-up about your inspiration.
If you showed your challenge quilt in May, be sure to get your write-up to Janet W (firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP.
What’s it all about: The challenge is to make a quilted project relating to or inspired by something on a magazine page (a word or phrase, picture or color, for example) to display at our next quilt show in 2022. Let your imagination run wild!
The page will be determined by your picking two numbers 0 through 9 when you receive your magazine. You can then use those numbers to pick a page. For instance, if you get the numbers 3 and 9, you could make a quilt from something that inspires you on page 3, 9, 39, or 93 – so four choices to come up with something intriguing to wow our group with. (Note, if you draw two of the same numbers, you will be allowed to redraw one number.)
The page from the magazine will need to be submitted with your completed challenge with a short paragraph about what it was on the page that inspired your quilt. Maximum size: 200 inches in perimeter
Completed Magazine Challenge Quilts will be displayed through out 2021 on a page dedicated to those challenges. (that’s a lot of time for all of us procrastinators!)
