Apple Valley Quilter’s Annual Picnic

 CHALLENGE June 9, 2015
 
IT FIGURES.  AS THE TIME COMES TO WRITE ANOTHER CHALLENGE, I AM WORKING FAST AND FURIOUSLY TO FINISH ANOTHER PROJECT BEFORE TIME RUNS OUT. MY USUAL M.O., EVERY YEAR THE SAME STORY.  IT FIGURES.  THAT PHRASE STUCK WITH ME AND BECAME THE IDEA FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE.
 
 YOU MUST USE A FIGURE IN YOUR NEXT CREATION. IT CAN BE OF ANYONE YOU CHOOSE, YOU, YOUR FRIEND, REAL OR IMAGINED ETC. TRANSLATE IT HOWEVER YOU WISH, IN WHATEVER FORM YOU CHOOSE. AGAIN WE WILL HAVE VIEWER’S CHOICE VOTING FOR THE FAVORITE “QUILTED ITEM” IN BOTH ODD AND EVEN CATEGORIES.  THE CHALLENGE IS DUE AT THE 2016 JUNE PICNIC.
 
FOR THE NEWBIES IN THE GROUP, THE EVEN CATEGORIES ENCOMPASS WHAT PEOPLE VIEW AS A TRADITIONAL QUILT, FLAT WITH FOUR CORNERS. THE ODD CATEGORY INCLUDES ANYTHING BUT FLAT WITH FOUR CORNERS, BAGS, BOXES, SOFT SCULPTURES, CLOTHING ETC.
 
THE “ I HATE LESA” CHALLENGE CONTINUES.

ALTERNATE CHALLENGE:
 I HAD SOME COMMENTS LAST NIGHT THAT MAYBE IF I GAVE SOME MORE STRUCTURE, MORE MEMBERS WOULD PARTICIPATE. THE PURPOSE OF A CHALLENGE IS TO MAKE YOU STRETCH AND GROW AS A QUILTER.
THIS “ALTERNATE CHALLENGE” IS TO REIMAGINE A NINE-PATCH. STRETCH IT; RESHAPE IT, HOWEVER YOU WANT TO ALTER IT. IF YOU NEED INSPIRATION, THERE IS AN AQS SERIES OF BLOCK CHALLENGE BOOKS THAT HAVE DONE THIS.
 
THE POINT IS TO HAVE FUN AND DO SOMETHING THAT IS NOT YOUR “GO TO” QUILTING PROJECT. YOU MAY LEARN SOMETHING NEW, OR THAT YOU REALLY LIKE A NEW TECHNIQUE.
