PTQ 2017 Challenge Block Rules

·        The Mississippi-themed 2017 block challenge will be the 2019 donation quilt.
·        The deadline will be the September meeting, with voting at the October meeting, and announcement of the winners at the November meeting.
·        Blocks will be turned in at 9 1/2” square, to finish at 9” square.
·        There are 5 fabrics in the packet. You must use at least 3 of the fabrics. You may add as many more as you need.
·        In order to make machine quilting easier:
-If you use fusible, use a lightweight one.
-If you use stabilizer, use a removable one.
-Do not use dimensional embellishments.
·        If you need more of one of the packet fabrics, email Karen at karzamendi@icloud.com.
·        Cut out the number on this page and pin it to your block when you turn it in.
