NMQG Challenges


Our guild issues quilting challenges 2-3 times a year.  These challenges are completely optional and totally up to you, but there ARE prizes involved for those who complete the challenges!  Current challenges will be listed at the top of this page, past challenges will be listed further down.  Have fun!

Current Challenge:  Optical Illusions (Due June 17, 2017)

Our first challenge for the year is "Optical Illusion."  Any quilt that plays a trick on the eyes is what we're looking for.  It might be straight seams that look curved, the appearance of a third dimension, a secondary pattern that emerges, a photo design or any other optical illusion.  Some techniques used my be straight piecing, curved piecing, grid piecing, or applique.

You can choose to make any type of piece... a quilt, mini quilt, pillow, pouch, table runner, or a stylin' vest!  Whatever you choose to make must be 100% completed to be eligible for the prize drawing at the end.

All items need to be completed by our June guild meeting.

Here are a couple of sites and Pinterest boards that have some good optical illusion eye candy!
