Challenge Quilt: Black & White plus one color
Each year, members are invited to participate in a BQG Quilt Challenge. Every year a new theme is presented at the September meeting. Participating quilters display their quilts at the June meeting, when members voted for their favorites. Winners receive a prize, and the 1st place winner will choose the theme for the following year.
Brenda Roach won the 2017-18 challenge and issues this year's challenge, which is due at the June 4, 2019 meeting. Here is the challenge:
Challenge Theme: Black & White Plus One Color
The quilts can use solid or patterned fabric or a combination of the two.
You can use any technique or theme.
The non-black and white color fabric can be different shades and patterns, but must ‘read’ as one color. So, yes, you can use different shades of the same color for the “One Color.”
Gray does not count as black. If gray is used, it will be considered to be the one-color fabric.
Your quilting thread can be any color of your choosing.
They can be any size, but be aware of the fact that we don’t yet know how we will be able to display them, so they may be folded or draped over chairs when we vote for the winners during the June meeting.
No sleeve is required, but they must be quilted and bound for that meeting.
The projects must have been started after the September meeting.
You may create more than one entry!
If you expect to have entries in the competition, please email Brenda: firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and approximate dimensions of the quilt(s). If you prefer to use paper, forms will be at the April and May meetings. This will help us plan the displaying of the quilts at the June meeting. You are not required to fill out a form to participate.
The theme for 2017-18 challenge was: "Simply Stripes," featuring a small quilt (up to 25" square) with predominantly stripes: 75% (give or take a bit) should be stripes. The winning entries for 2017-18 challenge were:
1st place - Brenda Roach 2nd place - Katha Soens 3rd place - Wendy Hodina
The "Simply Stripes" theme was chosen by Barbara Richards, the 1st place winner of the 2016–2017 Challenge Quilt, “Your Favorite TV Show or Movie.”
