RVQG 2021-2022 President's Challenge

We are the World

Let’s have fun doing what we love, being together, learning and sharing!  Our President’s Challenge is an opportunity to do this:  engage with one another and celebrate the cultural diversity that is woven through the fabric of our community.

Your challenge is to create a block (or more) depicting your heritage:  

  •  Highlight a special tradition, or a technique(s) specific to your culture; or a meaningful “moment” related to your heritage
  •  Choose a block size:  9 ½” x 9 ½”; or 18 ½” x 9 ½”; or 27 ½” x 9 ½” (unfinished - no quilting, no binding)
  •  Use fabrics and/or embellishments of your choice…have fun!
  • Timeline:  November - April

Your quilt block will be donated to the guild and set into a quilt.

When choosing your fabric colours, please consider that black sashing may be used in the final quilt assembly.  

It is intended that the completed quilt will be raffled or auctioned at a future RVQG event.  Proceeds will support our guild’s charities and community projects.
