Quilt Challenge

PPQG Quilt Challenge Basics 


A quilt challenge offers guild members the opportunity to challenge themselves by making a quilt that meets specific guidelines. A committee decides the rules of the challenge. Completed quilts will be displayed at the October guild meeting and attendees will be invited to vote for their favorites. Ribbons and cash prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers. Challenge quilts are exhibited when possible, but a subset of quilts may be displayed at local quilt shops and have, on occasion, traveled to local and national quilt shows. We encourage everyone to participate regardless of your quilting expertise! It’s amazing to see the diversity in the creations when the final results are displayed.  


2024 Challenge: Celebrating You! 










This challenge involves creating a finished quilt highlighting the color of your birthstone along with including at least one of your birth month flowers. The maximum size cannot exceed 96 inches, using only the selection of birthstones and flowers shown by challenge organizers. Your creation must be submitted by the September guild meeting. Full rules and information will be available at the monthly guild meetings or by contacting Teri Christakos or Jodi Wycoff.

2023 Challenge: FACE IT!


The 2023 FACE IT! challenge was a somewhat harder challenge than was expected when we started out! Out of 25 members who signed up for the challenge, 8 completed their quilts. All of them were outstanding and represented a lot of work!


The ribbon winners were as follows (from left to right): 1. People Choice and First Time, Matrix Portrait by Terri Christakos; 2. General Entry, Woman of the Andes by Judy Druelinger; 3. Professional Entry, 'Lil Punkin Eater by Sue Turnquist.
