On Sunday March 18th the guild meeting featured Iron Quilter. In this challenge members were given the same pack of solid fabrics and allowed to use a solid they brought with them. Beth and Jen focused our challenge with a power point presentation about city, architecture and urban themes expressed in quilt form. The five teams were given two hours to design, create, quilt and bind a Chicago inspired quilt.
Above: Beth and Erika paper piecing.
Here is Holly, Emily and April with the thrill of completion close at hand.
