Modern Mini Quilt Challenge - Red &White

Canada 150 Banner

We are looking forward to seeing all the wonderful mini-quilts that our members will be making and we hope that everybody will join in!

Guild Challenges are designed to give us a chance to explore and experiment with the principles of modern quilt design.

CHALLENGE GUIDELINES THEME: RED & WHITE. Design a quilt with two colours only. As its Canada's Birthday year, we have chosen to use only red  Red and White. Research red and white quilts for inspiration.

MINI QUILT SIZE: No side can be larger than 24 inches. Your quilt must be designed, pieced and quilted entirely by you.

QUILTING: Use a contemporary approach to quilting your mini. However, it does not have to be straight line quilting—there are many options available.

GETTING HELP: If you need help with your project, feel free to bring your in progress work to any meeting and grab a couple members before or after the meeting for a ‘private consult’. (But, it would be really cool to see all the completed projects as a surprise reveal at the due date meeting.)

DUE DATE: Completed projects are due for Show and Tell at our September 2017 meeting or the first meeting you attend after that date. Projects must be pieced, quilted and bound.
