Grand Strand Guild Challenges

Boy’s Quilt Panel Challenge

 

Challenge: A boy’s quilt made from a panel

Due date: March 19, 2020

 

Our first 2020 challenge is to make a boy’s quilt using a panel of your choice. GSQ has a large box of panels appropriate for a boy’s quilt. You may choose to use one of these panels or purchase your own panel.

 

On March 19 we will display the quilts and vote for the best. There will be three awards: first, second, and third place. Good luck.!

 

Appropriate sizes are

  • Young Child -  48” x 48” no larger than 48” x 60”

  • Older child – 55” x 72 max.   

Note that we cut our batting from 120 inch rolls of batting, getting batting for two quilts from each length. This is why we encourage quilts to be 55 inches wide or less.

 

As always, the greatest need is for quilts for older boys.

 

If you will be unable to turn in your quilt on March 19, please bring your quilt top in a bag to Kathy Petkis at the Welcome Table at any meeting.
