WFQ 2012 Quilt Challenge - Books!

The criteria for our 2012 quilting challenge have been released, and this year we're focusing on books!  Reading and quilting go together - so many quilters are avid readers and many even listen to audio books while quilting! 

Choose a favorite or one that inspires you and refer to the set of criteria below.  We have an opportunity to hang these quilts in participating businesses during the Sedro-Woolley Story Walk on March 10, 2012 and to also hang them as part of the Challenge category at our 2012 quilt show, June 1-2-3.

Complete your entry by February 29th (it's always fun to use that as an important date) and turn it in at Cascade Fabrics with a copy of the entry form - also available at Cascade Fabrics.

There is no limit on the number of times you can enter and EVERYONE is invited to participate!  Share this info with other local quilters of all ages and be inspired by books!

Sedro-Woolley Story-Walk
2012 Challenge Registration Form

The fine print: Using a book for your inspiration, make a quilt depicting some aspect of the book. You can use the cover, general story line, specific setting/scene in the book, title of the book or a character of the book to symbolize the book. There are no size restrictions on the quilt.

The quilt must have a hanging sleeve and if possible provide the rod also (doweling, cut to size, with 2 eye screws in each end works great), but please note, that depending on the store your quilt is placed in, we may use tacks or push pins to hang the quilt.

A copy of the cover of the book must be incorporated into the label on the back of the quilt.

This form must accompany the quilt. Please turn the completed quilt into Cascade Fabrics by February 29, 2012.

There is no limit on the number of times you can enter.
