Challenge Quilt Reminder

Have you completed your Challenge Quilt yet? With almost 3 weeks until our August Meeting, there's still time!

A reminder of the rules:

  • Choose a traditional block whose name begins with the same letter as one of your names and create a quilt in a modern style. This means that you will have at least three letters to work with or more if you have multiple middle or last names. 
  • Resources that catalog traditional blocks are numerous such as The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns by Jinny Beyer, 5,500 Quilt Block Designs by Maggie Malone, and
  • The quilts are due at the August 11 meeting and prizes will be awarded.
  • Quilt size not to exceed 36" on any one side.
  • The interpretation of your block is open to your imagination!
  • The design must use at least 3 of these 8 elements in modern quilt design: 
    • Bright/graphic color palette
    • Negative Space
    • Minimalism
    • No border
    • Improvisational piecing
    • Alternate grid work
    • Asymmetry
    • Exaggerated Scale
Don't have time to make a Challenge Quilt? Hope you'll join us anyway for what always turns out to be a wonderful display!


  • Please note a correction to the previous post regarding the Quilters of South Carolina: annual dues of $20 are payable at any time and run through the year, expiring on the month you joined. Registration for the Fall Retreat begins July 15, 2018.
