Annual Challenge Announcement: From Rita Sassone, "I recently heard this quote, which I think is important to share with my fellow quilters: 'You have to go by instinct and you have to be brave.' This is my challenge to you all! After experiencing Maria Shell's workshop and hearing about the Quilters of Gee's Bend, your task is to create an improv quilt (top, batting, back, quilted and bound) no smaller than 16" x 16" nor larger than 20" x 20" (doesn't need to be square) to showcase all you have learned. Be sure to add a label on the back to identify yourself. Remember, be bold and be brave! Can't wait to see your creations in October!"*
