Quilt With Us

hi, do any of you quilters ever have a quilt challenge, that all use one fabric that is available to all and add your own choice of fabrics to make a wallhanging or quilt, and possibly have a theme ? for example summer day or whatever? was just a idea to see what all you talented quilters could come up with? just a suggestion...

A "Fabric Challenge" is one of the most common Guild challenges. Fronen Steppdecker, The Odessa Quilt Club, Odessa, WA, did one for our 2009 Quilt Show in April. There was a fat quarter of a print fabric you had to use and the Quilt had to have tulips in it. It could be any size.
About 10 years ago we did one that had to include recognizable amounts of 3 fabrics. We could add a background fabric and one other fabric. It could be any size quilt, garment or decorator item that was quilted.

Our quilt group recently did a challenge we called "IRON CHEF: QUILTING" loosley based on the FoodNetwork cooking show. Each member was given a #10 envelope, on the front was printed Iron Chef: Quilting (members were told that if they couldn't be present to turn in their blocks in 1 month, use the same envelope to send the block in to the organizer). Inside the envelop was the instruction sheet with a 7" square of the challenge fabric (since we have about 50 members, we cut up a 2 yd piece of the focus fabric). The instructions were to use the "secret ingredient" to make a 6 1/2" block (seams included)...to further ensure that everyone made the blocks correct size, we printed a 6 1/2" square onto the instruction sheet! Use your own fabrics to coordinate with the "secret ingredient", and embellish as desired. The "theme" (challenge) was to make a block to complete a "Quilter's quilt". At the bottom of the instruction sheet was "Allez Cuisine", which literally meant "let's get cooking!" The quilt was raffled off at our midyear luncheon. Just like the T.V. show, where chefs have to use their creativity to come up with their own ideas for a dish, our challenge produced surprisingly varied types of blocks. It was a fun project.
What a great idea! Darling quilt - lot of creative folks!
