2016 Guild Challenge

Masterpiece Challenge

This challenge is a celebration of the great artists and the masterpieces they have created that we all honor and revere today in our museums and art galleries, along with honoring our own love of quilting and the masterpieces we create with our hands.

All those wishing to participate must form into groups of 4.

You will choose a masterpiece painting to everyone’s liking.
Photo copy the image 5 times.  Each person in the group should receive a copy and the 5th copy which needs to be approximately 14”x20” should be cut into 4 equal size pieces.  You can do this any way you like. Give one of the 4 equal pieces to each member of the group.

Duplicate your section as accurately as possible using the same colors and shapes etc.  You must do this four times so that each member of the group will receive a piece.  

When all pieces are done you will keep one and give the other three to the other members of your group.  

Sew the 4 sections you received from the other members together and  quilt, use borders to "frame", bind and add your quilt label to finish your masterpiece and make it your own.

 Step back and admire your masterpiece!

There will be an unveiling at the June meeting and a first, second, and third prize ribbon awarded by a vote from the membership.  

We will put them on display at the Cold Spring Fiber Festival at the end of the month.

Good luck and relax and enjoy the challenge!
