Throughout the year, the Guild hosts challenges to spur creativity in the member's quilting journey. The ones listed are the current challenges. Past challenges can be seen here.
Swap Fabric Placement Challenge
June 2022-November 2022
Using the fabrics you received during the guild swap or fabrics from your stash, you will create one block style three different ways by changing the placement of your chosen fabrics. Creations will be shared at the November meeting. All the details are here.
"Inspired" Fabric Swap
Bring a Fat Quarter of fabric that inspires you to the April meeting. You will swap that inspiration fabric with another member after a fun ‘get to know you’ activity and mixer at the meeting. Your inspiration Fat Quarter will be returned to you at the June meeting along with three more coordinating quilt shop quality Fat Quarters selected by your swap partner. You can then choose to use those four fabrics in the challenge to be announced in June!
The Fabric Placement challenge has come to an end. Thank you to the committee for bringing this to life. Prize winners for participating: Barb Phelps, Terry Darling, Gail McCarthy, and Megan Smith. Congratulations!
2022 St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month Sampler Quilt!
Each month for 10 months, we will introduce a block (or blocks) for you to complete in a color palette of your choice. The blocks will give you the opportunity to practice different quilting skills or techniques each month. If you complete all ten months, you will have a 60 inch throw quilt at the end of the year. More information can be found here.
