Grandma's Attic is hosting a Quilt Challenge to support Sable House, our local domestic violence shelter. In keeping with our "The Color of" challenges, this year's challenge is called The Color of Connection.
Entry packets for this year's theme include five theme fabrics, challenge rules, and an entry form. All proceeds from the sale of the packets go directly to Sable House. The maximum quilt size for the quilts entered into the challenge should not exceed 180 total inches when all sides are added together; however, there is no minimum size requirement. Each quilt must incorporate all theme fabrics, although the amount used is up to you. The remainder of the fabric used can be quilter's choice.
Quilts are due in to Grandma's Attic by August 24th, 2022, where they will be displayed from August 28-30th, 2022. The general public will be invited to vote for their favorites. Winners will be selected by customer ballot (one vote per viewer) based on Best Interpretation of Theme and Best Use of Color. (Remember, this is the general public, not professional quilt judges, so do not be afraid to enter!)
First Place prize is a $100 gift certificate to Grandma's Attic. Second Place prize is a $50 gift certificate, and Third Place Price is a $25 gift certificate. In addition, both the Best Interpretation of Theme and Best Use of Color will receive a fabulous fabric bundle.
Grandma's Attic has hosted this challenge for several years. Themes for the past few years have revolved around "The Color of" concept. So far, we've hosted the Color of Happiness, Kindness, Joy, Peace, Love, Courage, Healing, Hope, Compassion, Wonder, Dreams and Forever.
