Challenge

Each year our guild members are invited to participate in a new challenge chosen and presented by that year's Challenge Leader. The challenge quilts are viewed and voted on at the December Luncheon.

Challenge 2017 - Our 2017 Challenge Leader is Veronica Church. The 2017 Challenge is a wall hanging in a size of your choosing. There are 3 entry levels: Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. The Novice Level is to be made with Log Cabin blocks, the Intermediate Level Block is the Bethlehem Star, and the Advanced Level Block is the Glacier Star. Samples of these blocks can be found by searching the block name on the internet. Click here for a message from Veronica about the Challenge.

Challenge 2016 - Our Challenge Leader was Janis Hagen. The Challenge theme was movies or songs from the 50s in honor of Smith Mountain Lake's 50th Anniversary. This way we could work with the number 50 without having to use the number in our quilt. To view the top three winners in each category and a slideshow of all the entries click here.

Challenge 2015 - In honor of the guild's 25th Anniversary, Helen Buchanan chose a theme of "25" for Challenge 2015. The entry was to reflect the number 25 in some way; such as, 25 inches, 25 colors, 25 blocks, etc. To view the top three winners and a slideshow of the entries click here.

Challenge 2014 - Our Challenge Leader was Cindy Stachelski. This year's challenge was to make a purse. Everyone used the same pattern, but did it their way. To view the top three winners and a slideshow of the entries click here.
