Heber Valley Quilters 2008 Design Challenge!
Our theme for 2008 is Elements - water, air, fire, earth
January is Elements of Quilting - the block and the border
If you are participating in the design challenge this year, and hopefully you are, for the month of January you need to be working on a quilt block that measures between 14 and 19 inches square. Find a pattern or make your own and then pick your fabrics, both with your element that you drew in mind. There are many places online that have free block patterns. Try one of these sites: www.freequiltpatterns.info/
Make your block. Then you need to put a border on your new block that is at least 3 inches wide but not bigger than 5 inches wide.
That is it for January! Bring your element quilt top to February guild meeting for the next step in our elements design challenge and to receive your participation prize.
Look at the pleasure Shantelle is getting as she holds 'The Basket of Doom or Gladness' that we drew our design challenge fate from! Thanks Shantelle for making our design challenges so fun and interesting. You have an amazing mind to think of all of this good stuff for us! Thanks for s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g us too!
