The San Juan Quilters Guild Challenge.

This is a Challenge for our 2016 Quilt Show in October. The hope is to donate the final finished quilts to our local Veterans.
ABOUT SIZES:
A wheelchair quilt should be about 36″ x 60″ — it’s a narrower quilt so that it does not get caught in the mechanism and is long enough to cover the legs but not so long that it might drag.  This is a great size for a quick project.  You won’t need to piece a backing for one thing.
A lap quilt should be at least 48″ x 60″ but could be larger if you like.  We generally like ours to be about 50″ x 60″ but if you have an unfinished top from a class you took and you’d like to finish it for this project — and it just happens to be twin size, no worries.  We’ll take it!  Or if you have a design you want to try and it’s going to come out wider and longer, don’t agonize — make it the way that seems right.
You can use charms or strips rather than blocks.
This is a patriotic project. Try to keep it Reds, Whites and Blues. Of course you can also include Khaki.
This doesn’t have to be really fancy, just heartfelt.  Let your own creativity be your guide!
I think this will be a great year of helping our local Veterans.
If you have any questions call Becki Dunham or Shellie Purcell at 505-325-9712 or 505-486-5808.
