The Four Elements Challenge was issued at the June 2023 meeting. Members may choose to participate by signing up with Patti and selecting a slip of paper from the Challenge envelope. That slip will name one of the four elements: earth, air, fire, or water. Members are to create an original quilt with the theme of their chosen element. Members are asked to try a new technique or use a new material in the composition of the quilt. The quilt may be no larger than 72 inches in perimeter. Members will turn in their completed quilt in a bag at the January meeting. The quilts will be displayed at the February meeting and members will vote for their favorite quilt in each of the Element categories. Sign-ups will continue through November 2023.
The idea for this Block of the Month started with the Hawaiian-style quilt Sandy Hill made a few years ago. Several of these designs were used in that quilt. Participants should use their own creativity and ideas to make the designs and blocks their own. The blocks are designed for the foregrounds to align at the lower corners, at the 1-inch mark, so they can be set side-by-side, sashed, laid out in a "round robin," etc. The extra palm tree blocks can be used to end a row or to set diagonally as corner blocks. We are accepting suggestions from members for the design for Block #12. Let us know what it should be.
Members are asked to make a mini-quilt to be donated to the Mini-Quilt Auction Fundraiser in November 2022.
