2016 Mystery

President’s Block

This year instead of making a quilt block for our Guild President Ann Hockmeyer has asked the members to help her with the final requirement to enter the Certified Judge Program. That requirement is to judge a show that has a minimum of 35 quilts.

If you’d like to help here’s what you have to do…

Theme – Favorite Holiday (must be stated on label).

Size – The sum of the sides cannot exceed 100 inches.

Construction – 3 Layers (top, batting, back) no false backs.

Label – Required on back but securely covered with fabric or masking tape.

Deadline – May 17, 2016.

 

The quilts will be displayed at the June meeting (with ribbons) and again at the Guild’s Quilt Show in September 30th & October 1st 2016.

 

Please see Jane Hamel at Guild to sign up or if you have any questions.
