Scrap Quilt Challenge deadline approaching


Deadline to upload your picture to the flickr pool is


Challenge Guidelines:

  • 60” x 60” minimum size
  • Entries must be completed quilts (patchwork, applique, rag quilt are all fine.  It just must be a completed project)
Scrap, Strip or String quilts are historically a way to use up the smallest scraps & strips of fabrics from other projects. Quilters would put every string of fabric to use, in those times when there was no room for waste.
Even in our times, we all have a scrap bin that overflows or a collection of fat quarters stashed away longing for a project.
There are no design limitations on your challenge piece, other than overall size and that the quilt should utilize scraps of fabric in an obvious way/be the focus of your quilt, and the quilt must be finished (quilted).

So gather up your scraps & start designing your masterpiece!
  • Quilt pictures must be uploaded to our Flickr group by August 31, 2012.
  • Voting will take place from September 1– September 15, 2012 and take place on Voting open to all, but limited to 1 vote per computer. Any tie will be broken by staff vote.
