2020 LOCKDOWN CHALLENGE
Your challenge, should you decide to accept it, is to submit a Quilt made between March 13th and the next In-Person Guild meeting. Minimum size is 1700 square inches (36"x48") and the maximum is as big as you want. Option one is a Lockdown Quilt using 50% fabric from scraps - garbage on the floor. The quilt may also include leftover orphan blocks. Yes, a "psycho Quilt". Your second option is a Lockdown Quilt that is your interpretation of your feelings, outlook, or opinion of the world during the Lockdown. All submitted Lockdown Challenge Quilts have the same size and time constraints. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place quilt labels will be awarded to the winning "Lockdown Challenge Quilts" after voting at the next 'In-Person' meeting.
