2020 Fabric Challenge

   

      The Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild did a fabric challenge this year. Participants were each given some Robert Kaufman's Carolyn Friedlander fabric ("Green Wall in Garden" design #16608)


and instructions to take a classic quilting block and re-imagine it. The blocks participants could chose from were the Ohio Star, Drunkard's Path, Log Cabin, and Churn Dash.


     The final mini-quilt needed to be 18" square, 1/3 to 1/2 of the quilt needed to contain the challenge fabric and the initial block that was chosen needed to be recognizable.

     This challenge also marked a special milestone for the Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild...our very first junior member participating in the fabric challenge! We were very excited to have our first junior member join the guild, Evelyn Prendergast! Evelyn's mom Kate is also a member of the guild. Not only was this PMQG's first junior member to participate in our annual fabric challenge but this was Evelyn's very first quilt and she did an awesome job:
