2023 Challenge – RUBY ANNIVERSARY

In 2021 the Thunder Bay Quilters Guild celebrated our 40th anniversary which is considered our ‘ruby’ anniversary. For the 2023 Superior Quilt challenge the committee has decided to celebrate this achievement.

Guess what colour the fabric is! Once again Northcott Fabrics has graciously provided three (3) bolts of fabric for our challenge.

There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes of $125, $100 and $75 for the most votes plus 5 more participation prizes that will be drawn at the banquet. The drop off date for the challenge quilts will be during library night on Tuesday, April 18 at the Calvary Lutheran Church from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. When you drop them off you will receive a receipt that will be needed for pickup in June. A few reminders about the challenge:

  1. You must use all 3 challenge fabrics on the front of your quilt.
  2. Quilt must be quilted and bound.
  3. Limit of 3 additional fabrics on the front of your quilt not including your binding or backing.
  4. Maximum size is 36-inch square.
  5. We will collect the challenge quilts in April 18 library night. Pickup will be at the de-registration after the Show on Sunday.
  6. The quilts will be pinned to ribbons on the display wall. No need for hanging sleeves.
  7. Label your quilt on the back only not on the front.
