President’s Challenge


The President’s Challenge will be different this year and is two-fold. There are also two opportunities to share your projects. We will have a special exhibit at the quilt show and we want to see all your projects at the December Tea. Have fun with the wide open possibilities of these challenges!

Challenge 1: A Red and White Project

  • Make something for our Ruby celebration
  • It can be anything….full quilts large or small, place mats, handbags, mug rugs, anything!
  • No size requirements
  • Must be a finished project, not a work-in-progress
  • Use only the colors RED and WHITE

Challenge 2: A Red and White 12″ Mini Quilt

  • Make a 12″ Quilt Block in a design of your choice
  • Quilt and bind your block into a mini quilt
  • Use fabrics that ONLY include RED and WHITE, no other colors, even in the small details


  • We will have a special exhibit in the Quilt Show
  • If your piece is ready by the Quilt Show deadline, enter it as you would any other quilt and select the Red & White Special Exhibit as your category
  • Make sure your project meets other quilt show requirements to be entered
  • Be sure to have your project ready by the December Tea, those display details will be available closer to the tea
  • We will not be entering the AQS guild challenge with these projects
