BUT the challenge is still happening!!

Quilt Show Challenge – Reflections

What does ‘reflections’ mean to you? Could it be our unique aurora borealis with its blue and green colours shimmering across the night sky? Possibly you see a reflection in a mirror or pond. We are looking forward to seeing your creations!

Once again Northcott Fabrics has graciously provided 3 bolts of fabric for our challenge. Each bolt has been divided into fat quarters and fat eighths and are now available for purchase.

NEW – The challenge quilts will be displayed as part of the Grand Nations Crossroads fibre arts exhibition from July 13 – September 17, 2021 at the Thunder Bay Museum. Voting information to follow.

There is a limited amount of fat quarters and fat eighths available. It will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Fat quarters can be purchased for $10 and fat eights for $5. Payment for the challenge fabric will be cash or e-transfer only to Ellen Lang. Contact Ellen if you are interested to arrange payment and coordinate pickup/delivery.
