In keeping with the theme of our 2018 Quilt Show, our Challenge this year will be to make a Quilt of Valor.

Due date for entry into the Quilt Show: April 1, 2018
Size: minimum 60”x72”; maximum 72”x90”
Pattern: use a commercial pattern or one of your own design. Avoid full-size flag patterns that might resemble a casket flag.
Fabrics: use quality, adult-appropriate, 100% quilting cotton. Avoid juvenile prints and branch-specific (Army, Navy, etc) prints unless the quilt’s recipient is known. For this Challenge, use patriotic colors.
Batting: batting should be quality, low loft cotton, cotton blends, polyester, or polyester blends.
Finishing: quilts must be quilted and bound, and have a (temporary) sleeve sewn on the back so they can be hung for the Challenge and the Quilt Show.
