From time to time, Shenandoah Valley Quilters Guild has a challenge for members. In some cases, a challenge may be exhibited in our quilt show.
For 2015 – 2016, we have a challenge called “PhD”, Projects Half Done. This is the fifth year for this challenge. Previously it was called “UFO”, Unfinished Objects. Many of us have projects that haven’t been finished. This is the opportunity to do just that. The challenge is to list six projects to get done in the next year (the year starts in September with the first number). The list is submitted to a coordinator who will keep track of your progress. To begin the challenge, two fat quarters are turned in with the list. Every two months a number is randomly drawn (1 through 6) and that is the number on the list that needs to be completed in two months. At each guild meeting during show and tell, you are to show your finished project. If you don’t show your finished project at the end of the two month period, you owe the “kitty” a fat quarter. In case you can’t be at the meeting, send or email a picture of your project to the coordinator and that will keep you from owing the “kitty”. Each completed project gets their name into a drawing for all the fat quarters at the end of the year. The coordinator for 2016 – 2017 is Cerise Haas.
