Our First Member Sewing Challenge

At the last meeting, we introduced and prepped for our very first Member Sewing Challenge.  For this challenge, each member was asked to bring a fat quarter of small scale print modern fabric.  Participating members were broken down into 2 groups for the challenge, 6 in each group.  Fabric was then cut into strips, 3 x 18 inches, and shared with the other group members resulting in each member having a strip of their own fabric as well as a strip from each of the other members in their group.  Here's what each member ended up with:

Group 1's Fabric Strips

Group 2's Fabric Strips

Here's the challenge portion:

·       Each member will use the fabric strips to make a project of their choice (mini quilt, pillow, table decoration, bag, etc….the ideas are limitless!!!).
·       The finished project can measure no larger than 24 inches x 24 inches.
·       All member fabrics must be represented/visible on the front/outside of the project but they can also be used elsewhere.
·       A solid fabric must also be integrated into the front/outside of the project.
·       Fabric may be added to complete the project; however the main/focus fabrics must be the member strips and the solid.
·       Completed projects should be brought to the February meeting.

We are so excited to see what our members create!
