Challenge 2006

There's a Song on My Quilt

Our 2006 Challenge Leader was Cindy Stachelski. The Challenge was to take a song title and immortalize it in a quilt. The quilts were presented at the Christmas Luncheon and everyone tried to match the song title to the quilt. 86 members registered for the luncheon and 62 members met the Challenge. 30 Challenge quilts (chosen by Kate Holdgreve and Alma Carter) were shown at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia, February 22-25, 2007. From Hampton, the quilts went directly to the Quilt Fest in Somerset, New Jersey, and will arrive home in time to be shown at the National Quilting Day Celebration. They were exhibited at the Franklin County Library for the month of April and appeared at the Newcomers meeting on May 14. The quilts were returned to their owners at the LQG May meeting.

The slide show was originally created in Power Point by Marilyn Amerson of Franklin County Library and distributed on CD to the Challenge 2006 participants. Each frame includes the song title and the name of the person who made the quilt. Your webmaster has converted it to a PDF file. The easiest way to view each quilt is to click the down arrow on the right scroll bar. Click the arrow once to proceed to the next quilt. There are 32 frames.
