Retreat 2020 Challenges


Challenges are projects completed prior to the retreat and turned in at the retreat for judging by retreat participants. Retreat participants will receive ballots for judging. Winners of each challenge will be awarded $50.00. We encourage each of you to participate in both challenges. Let your creativity shine.

Challenge 1: Farm to Table

Design and create something that could be used on a table: such as a table runner, placemats, centerpiece, food carrier,
food container, etc. Your creation must include fabric.

Challenge 2: Farm Theme Quilt Block

Design and construct a 12 1/2” X 12 1/2” quilt block using the farm theme, such as: a barn block, a farm animal block, or a pieced block using farm motif fabrics. Quilt blocks can be made using a variety of quilting techniques. To be accepted for judging quilt blocks MUST be 12 1/2” X 12 1/2”; have 1/4” seams; be of quality construction; and if the block is appliquéd, the edges must be appropriately finished to be used in the construction of a quilt. The Retreat Committee is requesting that you donate your block to be used in charity quilt projects.
