Challenge Quilts

2018 Quilt Show Challenge –

“The BIG 4-O” 

This is the 40th annual quilt show for the OQG!
Traditionally, the 40th is the RUBY anniversary.
What does the BIG 4-O mean to you?
 Literally four “O”s?
40 somethings?
A big “40”?
4 signs of Omaha?
4 shades of red? OR 40?
Something else entirely?  
Make it yours!
Make it no more than 20″ square.
Make it RED!
Must be 3 layers and contain quilting stitches

Red and white quilts are very in-the-news right now.  And remember our September speaker, Katie P-M?  She described the fun of making a monochromatic quilt.

Challenge yourself to participate!

We are looking forward to a wonderful display of predominately RED small quilts showcasing the passion of OQG members for quilting and for your guild.
