2015 Guild Challenge

The Giving Quilt Guild Challenge

A Guild Challenge is issued to all quilt guild members for the Giving Quilt Exhibit to be held February 7 and 8, 2015, at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center, 9039 S Saint Landry Ave, Gonzales, LA.

The rules are simple.

·   Quilts must be suitable for a child and may be sized as appropriate for a tot to a teen.

·   Quilts must be made using a recognizable amount of Andover Fabrics Dimples Collection R7, which can be viewed to the right. 

·    Please prewash your challenge fabric to eliminate excess dyes!

·    Quilts must be donated to the children’s charity of the quilt maker’s choice.

·    Quilts must be submitted to the Giving Quilt by January 24, 2015.

Quilts will be grouped by guild at the show.  Each quilt maker is eligible for first, second, third place and honorable mention ribbons with a cash prize for the First Place quilt.  Quilt makers without a guild affiliation may also submit a quilt.
