Each year the Challenge Committee selects a theme and presents it at the January meeting calling for members to challenge themselves with a new technique, design, or interesting interpretation of that theme. The theme is different each year. The Challenge Committee defines the guidelines and requirements. Past challenges included a swatch of fabric or a bloc to be used in the quilt, and themes such as “13”, and “My Special Day”. Challenge quilts are presented at the November meeting. Members vote on best in show. The winner receives the Golden Scissors award.
