Here are the exciting results of the 2016 Travel Poster Challenge. Thirteen quilts were turned in, and the winners were:
1st Tina Dickens (fourth on top row)
2nd Betty Allen (third on top row)
3rd Linda Flanders (fourth on middle row)
3rd Jo-Ann Evans (third on middle row)
Below are the rules we used to make these quilts.
New Challenge: Dianne McLendon introduced our new challenge: “You’ve Got the Whole World In Your Hands,” which could also be called the “Travel Poster Quilt Challenge.” With our quilt show coming up, making a wall quilt rather than a bed-sized quilt seems best! Here are the rules:
Theme: Where would you like to go? Or where have you been that you loved? Depict this place (whether specific or generalized) in the center body of the quilt. Add a 4” border made of blocks which relate to this place. No words, numbers, phrases or text allowed. Size: Inside body: minimum 18” on any side, maximum 36” on any side PLUS a 4” pieced border. This pieced border should be blocks which help identify the place you are depicting. Fabrics: You will be given three pieces of fabric which must be incorporated; add any others you wish. Fee is $5.00. Money prizes will be awarded for viewers’ choice voting.
Deadline: The reveal will be at the December meeting.
