Odds, Ends and Leftovers

Have you become a "saver" instead of a "quilter"?

Welcome to my world. The challenge: It's time to empty those boxes of pre-cut squares and strips!

The solution: Execute Odds, Ends and Leftover design, a scrap quilt or stylized modern quilt, that maximizes the use of pre-cut 4", 3-1/2", 2-1/2" squares and 2-1/2" strips (no buying allowed).

The result: One quilt design yet it is as unique as its maker.

Black to White (BTW)
For most people who text, BTW means by the way. But Modern quilters are a different breed. For them, BTW means from black to white. The purpose of this challenge is to create a modern quilt whose colors change from black to white and has shades of gray in-between. If a little something extra is needed, then one color, in one place, may be added to give the quilt a little POP!

Upcycled or Recycled Aprons

Upcycling—a form of recycling—is this generation's way of giving new life to old objects. For this exhibit, we invite you to give a new, improved purpose to one of your own unfinished projects, containing either piecing or applique, by transforming them into an apron. You may also use a part of a garment that is just too sentimental to discard, or any type of fabric scraps.
