2020 Guild Challenge
The challenge was to create a mini-sized quilt (or wall-hanging)
based on a simile that you pulled from the hat.
This was definitely a challenge!!!
We had ten courageous members who stepped up.
These were revealed at our monthly virtual Zoom meeting.

"clear as a bell" winter night.

"swimming like a fish".
