Canyon's 2021 Member Challenge
Color Me Festive!
Each year Canyon holds a member challenge where members create one-of-a kind quilts that uniquely express the maker’s interpretation of the challenge theme. The evening is a fun-filled event complete with voting for your favorite quilt and a awards. This is, of course, followed by prizes! Next there’s a silent auction. We enjoy a dinner (when we are able to meet in person). The evening includes lots of mingling and socializing.
The annual reveal is held at the November guild meeting.
This year’s member challenge theme is Color Me Festive. Interpret the theme in any way you like. Canyon is supplying a fat quarter of festive fabric and requiring you to use it in any quantity, just so that it shows.
Your quilt can be artsy, traditional, floral, party-like, abstract, landscape, portrait, polka dot, striped, whatever you want!
Key words are Festive, Colorful, Playful, Fun, Happy
Fabric is Moody Bloom by Create Joy Project for Moda Fabrics.
