This month is always exciting for our guild, each year we have a challenge presented to our members for those who want to participate. This year 2018/19 our challenge was called "Panel Perfect"
This challenge will involve starting with a 'Panel'. There are so many wonderful panels in the marketplace (or perhaps in your stash). Some panels will not fit the size specifications of the challenge, but many contain four or more smaller blocks within the purchased panel. It is perfectly okay to cut these apart and use only one (or more) of the blocks if that suits your plan for constructing your challenge. (A fabric that you fussy cut motifs from, does not qualify as a panel). Now it is your turn to embellish the chosen panel and make it special - whether through sashing, bordering with patchwork blocks, pairing with alternate blocks or thread painting etc. - you do what you think will enhance your work, but staying with in the size restriction of 120". Challenges will consist of three layers, quilted, bound and finished!
And here are the piece submitted!!!
These works of art will hang in the Dauphin Public Library for the months of May and June.
