MAKE IT BEAUTIFUL -Summertime Quilt Challenge

Beauty is a thing seldom seen. It is held by all, within the soul it lies, waiting to come out to the surface, but it can only be found if someone is sharing their soul.  Beauty is suppressed by the evils of the world. Only love can bring beauty out. Once seen, beauty never hides again. Not even hatred can deny beauty of it's true design. Beauty, although possessed by all; few and fewer yet will ever see one of the most beautiful sights - the beauty held by you.  

Deadline:  September 25, 2013

This challenge is open to Crocus Quilt Guild Members.  If you are not a member please contact Dawn Piasta for participation details.  Email:, 

Challenge:  Create and submit a quilt that when finished is between 18” and 24” square.  Include a 4” sleeve for hanging and a label with your name, date, and title on the back.  Use only fabric items that are, no longer useful or “beautiful” to your eyes.  Use only textile products. Use whatever technique you would choose. Simplicity, resourcefulness, texture and colour will guide you along the way.  

Gather these items from various locations such as:

Garage sale shirts or men’s ties

Dress from Salvation Army

Skirt  from Value Village

Blouse that is in your clothes rag pile from home
