Quilt Show Challenge

We can hardly wait until June 3-4-5, when the Woolley Fiber Quilters will have their 2nd annual show! So to get ready, we are having a quilt challenge - these entries will be exhibited at the show and will be subject to voting by the public. Here are the rules:

Finished piece must be 100 inches or less in diameter.
Quilt must contain at least one item purchased from a dollar-type store - visible on the front.
Quilt must have a label on the back that includes the receipt for the item you purchased.

That's it! Start those creative engines humming! And finish those other entries for the show - entry details coming in a future post. But soon!
