Challenge Quilts

A challenge requires specific style and construction rules agreed upon by quilt guild members, designed to improve their quilting skills while they enjoy comparing results. This year’s challenge, met by 11 quilters from the Delectable Mountain Quilt Guild in the Bethel, Vermont area, was to create a quilted placemat, and the challenge quilt display will reflect that theme with a playfully set table. Challenge quilts are numbered 37-47.
