2020 Guild Challenge

Pick a Color!

Size: 18" by 18" square

Subject: Pick a color for your quilt!  Any color you want!

Fabric: Entirely your choice!

Due: August MPQG Meeting—6:30 p.m. Monday, August 3rd.

Your quilt must have three layers—top, batter, and back. It may be any style (traditional, modern, art, or a combination) and it may be embellished any way you like. This is wide open and leaves you ample room to create something special!

It must have a 4" sleeve for hanging. The label on the back of your quilt should include:

Your name
Your quilts name
2019 MPQG Challenge
Celebrate [fill in holiday name]

Quilts will be displayed at the August Guild meeting, the 2020 Monterey County Fair, and at the April 2021 MPQG Quilt Show where they may be judged if you choose.

"Pick a Color" Challenge Quilts DUE August

by the Challenge Committee: Linda Branting, Mary Kay Hamilton and Phyllis Martin

Two important reminders: Please remember to put a label on the back of your quilt that includes your name, your quilt’s name, and “2020 Quilt Challenge”.

Also, your quilt needs a 4” sleeve. For step-by-step directions on constructing permanent and temporary hanging sleeves, visit the resource page on the MPQG website.

All Challenge Quilts will be collected on August 3rd and submitted to the Fair as a group display. You do not have to enter your quilt; we will take care of entering them all and will supervise hanging. Quilts will not be judged for fair ribbons but visitors can vote for their favorites.


Challenge Quilts

Quilt Challenges are typically held once a year in the Spring. The challenge might involve the use of specific fabrics, a particular theme, size, etc. Late Winter or early Spring, watch the NEWS section on the HOME page for details.

The quilts are shown at the Monterey County Fair in August/September. There will be a Viewer’s Choice ballot at the Monterey County Fair.

The quilts are exhibited again at the MPQG Quilt Show the following April. Quilts will be eligible for judging at the MPQG Show, if desired. They are also eligible for the Viewer's Choice ballot.

Deadline: Monday at the August guild meeting.
