Annual Quilt Challenge Reveal (June, 2016 Guild Meeting Program)

Our Challenge this year was issued by Clara Mashek and Carrie Townsend- "The Number 9"
Our members were challenged to take a book, and open it to page 9.  Then we were to create a quilt inspired by what was printed on page 9.

The challenge quilts were shown and described by their designers/ makers with Clara and Carrie acting as MC's.

A total of 24 quilts were displayed on the back wall (shown at left).  Those in attendance admired the quilts and then placed their ballots for their favorites.

 The winners were announced at the end of the meeting and awarded gift certificates.


Barbara Sanders won first place, with “Keep Portland Weird”’; Jean Lasswell won 2nd place, with “Library Quilt”, and 3rd place went to Debra Welch, with “Blank Slate.  It was difficult to choose one, however, as all the quilts were winners.
