I've been program co-chair of our guild chapter this year (Foothills Quilters). One of my responsibilities was to create the yearly challenge. This year we did a "Stone Soup" Challenge. What is that you ask? Well, whoever signed-up to participate received a packet that contained an appliqued toy block, a 9-patch block, a nickel square, a fat eighth, and a strip of rick rack. They were to use a recognizable piece of each item, add their own fabric, and create a quilt. This year we coordinated the challenge with our charity chair, Mary, so had the gals make children's quilts. I made up a few too many packets in anticipation of the challenge, so decided to turn them into quilts, rather than have them sit here as orphan blocks. So, you guessed it, I made more than one quilt for the challenge. Below are pictures of the appliqued toys that each person chose from, a picture of one of the packets, and the three quilts I made for the challenge. Following those pictures, there are pictures of all of the quilts the ladies made for the challenge. I was so pleased with the amount of participation. What a fun time we had with this challenge!
