At last year's retreat you drew out a number for a magazine and a number for the page in that particular magazine. It is that specific page that is your inspiration for this year's quilt project. Let your creativity juices flow to see how that page 'speaks' to you in regards to a pattern, color way, or subject matter. Have fun with the challenge! I encourage you to make this quilt project a large couch throw or a twin-sized quilt. The plan is to donate these quilts to individuals in hospice care. When the patient is no longer able to enjoy the quilt, it is a kind and touching gesture to pass the quilt onto the loved one's family to keep. What a comfort to the family to be able to keep the last item that 'hugged' their loved one.
*At the time of the retreat, if you have a loved one or a friend in Hospice Care- you may chose to donate your quilt to that individual. However, if you do not have any connections to an individual in hospice care, we'll decide at the retreat which hospice organization will receive our retreat challenge quilts.
I have included photos of those of you who are participating in this challenge holding the magazine page that is your inspiration! Can't wait to see the completed quilts! (Especially since some of you have a more challenging magazine page than others! *wink, wink*)
P.S.- Hope I took a photo of everyone choosing to participate!
I think some of you might have cheated when choosing!
You're just pouting because you did not get the donkey page!!!! And probably jealous of Jan W who got a centerfold page!! (Actually I should say a "FOLD OUT" page!!) *TeeHee*
This is the most interesting challenge I've ever seen. Please, please, please post the results of this wonderful project so that those of us who are "honorary members from afar" can enjoy finished projects!
Marcia, since I didn’t see my picture, do I get to pick any magazine page that I like and make accordingly.. or, I don’t have to make anything?
You left the retreat with your magazine BEFORE I thought about taking pictures. So your new homework assignment is to post a selfie in this discussion of you holding the magazine turned to your specific page. :)
And NO cheating Finda Lisher!!!!! LOL
(And yes, we will be expecting to see a completed quilt made by you that was inspired by your magazine page at our August retreat!)
I am glad you posted this as I had totally forgot about this challenge YIKES!
