Sinnissippi Quilters, are you ready for a fun and easy quilt challenge? At our quilt show in May 2015, the Cow Parade of Quilts was exhibited, to rave reviews! In order to display these quilts, it was required that the guild purchase a case of the books called “Out Of the Box With Easy Blocks” by Weidman/McFarland, which is filled with patterns and instructions for many fun and unusual blocks, including the basic cow pattern. We have planned a quilt challenge as an incentive to purchase a book for $25.00, make a quilt, and be eligible to WIN $25.00! (Several members bought the book at the show and are included in the challenge.) There will be NO judging! Names will be drawn from a basket at both afternoon and evening meetings, and there may be additional prizes added. Quilts are due at the March 2016 meetings, which is also the Neonatal Sew-In. If you choose to make and donate your challenge quilt to neonatal, there may be extra prizes drawn!
