2018 Outside of the Box Challenge
This is your challenge, should you choose to accept it. You have each been given a box of tissue. You will not receive any fabric this year. Instead, you will take your inspiration from the tissue box and make a quilted project using the colors you see. Use your imagination to determine the pattern you will make - either traditional or modern - but the colors of the box need to be represented to a large degree. When a section of the box is displayed alongside your challenge on reveal day, viewers need to see the similarity between the colors of your project and the box and know that was your inspiration. Have fun.
This is the note presented to our guild members, along with a colorful tissue box, in the fall of 2017 for our annual challenge. This is definitely a twist to our usual, but what a great idea. You can view the completed projects that came in this month for the challenge reveal.
