ABC, it’s easy as 123! (Do Re Mi…)
Completion date: July 8, 2020

This year’s quilt challenge is to make a quilt for YOURSELF that represents a few of your favorite things – things that you love! This can be as easy or as complicated as you choose.

A B C as easy as 123

A is for appliqué so you are to include at least 1 appliqué technique. This may be raw edge, machine straight stitch, fusible, needle turn, absolutely any type of appliqué you choose! THE APPLIQUÉ IS TO REPRESENT something you LOVE! It can represent a hobby, family member, pet, or it can be words.

B is for block so you are to include at least 2 of your favorite blocks. These may be as simple as a nine patch or as elaborate as an English paper pieced block. You may choose block pattern you have made hundreds of times or challenge yourself to a block you’ve always wanted to learn! Again… up to you! B can also stand for beads, so if you love them…. add them! Beads are not a requirement, but they are allowed.

C is for color so you are to include your 3 favorite colors! You may also add black, white or gray. If your favorite color is blue you may use variations of blue (robin egg, royal, navy). Don’t stress or over complicate the color rule… the colors in your quilt need to be colors you would wear or have in your home decor because that means you would love them! C can also stand for couching so if you want to give it a try, go for it! Again, not a requirement but it is allowed.

SIZE: Minimum 40 x 40 wall hanging up to 60 x 72 lap / throw size. Make it to fit your personality and your size!!!
