May 5, 12, 19: Choose a panel from GSQ

August 11: Return tops to be quilted by GSQ

October 20: Quilts due, challenge judging

Our children’s panel bin is once again full! So we are holding our second children’s panel challenge on October 20, 2022.  As before, these quilts will be donated to Fostering Hope.  You may choose a panel from the bin; or if you prefer, you may use your own panel.  Available panels will be displayed at the May 5, 12, and 19 meetings.  You may submit more than one quilt, but all quilts must be quilted and bound for entry into the challenge.


All quilts submitted will be displayed, voted on, and gift certificates awarded.  1st- $30.00; 2nd-$20.00; 3rd-$10.00.


Size guidelines:



Rules for quilt tops to be long armed by GSQ.  Please complete the information on the bottom of this form and attach to your quilt:


  • Tops are due to Jane Knaub by August 11th.

  • If needed, you may use fabric from the closet for this project.

  • All quilt tops must have borders. Please measure your borders before sewing them so that quilt will lay flat.

  • No floral or ginghams in a boy’s quilt please.

  • Backing must be provided for your top.  Quilt backs must be 8 inches wider and 8 inches longer than your top.

  • Backing may be pieced. If pieced, use ½ inch seams and press your seams open. This helps the back lay flat and reduces bulk.

  • Batting: if you need batting, use the form below. Max. size is 55” x 72”.

  • Binding must be provided. After your quilt is quilted, it will be returned to you for binding. Find the perimeter of your quilt by adding the lengths of all four sides and then add 15-20 inches to this length. This is the length of binding you will need to provide.


Guidelines for quilts that are completed by the quilter, due October 20:

You can request batting for your quilt top. Submit form below by August 11.  The maximum size available is 55 x 72.  You do not need to have a border.  Please use the form on the bottom to request your batting.
