Great Lakes Heritage Quilters 

Quilt Challenge 2021-2022

Martha Stewart


Please consider creating a charity quilt for our guild challenge. Our goal is LOTS of Charity quilts. If you have
never given a charity quilt before, challenge yourself to make a wheelchair or crib size. These charity quilts will
make a huge difference to many.


Criteria:
2 Fabrics or 2 Colors

Minimum size 36 x 45 – No maximum size
Any pattern of your choice
Binding and backing are not included in 2 Fabric or 2 Color criteria
Project to be quilted and bound
Completed challenge quilts accepted at each in-person meeting* and all due by June, 2022 Guild Meeting


Sample photo for 2 fabrics and 2 colors


*If no in-person meeting is scheduled during any month, a collection/drop-off date will be set and communicated via email and on the guild member Facebook Chat page.
 

FAQ:

  • Can I submit more than one quilt? Absolutely, please do.
  • Can I turn in a challenge quilt before June, 2022? Yes, I will have dates for drop-off collections when no in-person guild meetings are held. Watch for guild announcements on dates.

  • How can I win a prize? As each quilt is turned in, your name will be put into a basket. In June three names will be drawn.

  •  What can I win? There will be three equal cash prizes at the June meeting

  • How will we see the Challenge quilts? As each quilt is turned in, I will take a photo with the member name submitting it. As quilts are turned in, I will pass them on to Charity. A PowerPoint presentation showing all the Challenge quilts will be shown (either on Zoom meeting or in-person). Photos of all Challenge quilts will be placed on our Guild Facebook Chat page following the end of Challenge, June, 2022.
