Summer 2019 Quilt Challenge (Response and donations)

We had a good turn out for the Challenge at the Festival of Quilts  2018  --  22 Challenges!


Seeing Red

Maple Leaf Quilters 2018 Festival of Quilts Challenge (Was held April 2018)

I always liked red. It's a picker-upper.” Nancy Reagan

Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger, and frustration.” Taylor Swift

Red Quilt, Your Design

Make a quilt (front, back, and batting) using mostly red fabrics.  Should measure 5 inches by 36 inches and will hang with the length down (sleeve will be 5 inches).  Quilt should be noticeably red with at least 50% made with red fabrics.

Enjoy. ** Remember the size is 5 inches by 36 inches
