Austin Area Quilt Guild

2019 Challenge

Four by Four
Honoring of Four Decades of the AAQG (1978-2018)

The challenge is to create a small quilt. Each quilter has the choice of two options:

Option 1:  Make four different blocks using the same color-way for each of the blocks. Example: a log cabin block, a monkey wrench block, a Dresden fan block, and a churn dash block—all done in blues.

Option 2:  Make four blocks using the same design pattern, but use a different color-way for each of the blocks. Example: four log cabin blocks—one in greens, one in blues, one in yellows, one in oranges.

Block Size: Blocks should be no smaller than 6” finished, nor larger than 10” finished.

Finishing:  Blocks can either be set two over two (making a square quilt) or set in a row (as for a table runner). Blocks could be traditionally pieced (hand or machine), paper pieced, appliqu├ęd, or of modern free-form design. Any binding is acceptable.

Size:  Finished quilts should be no larger than 24” square for the two over two layout, or no larger than 14” by 44” for the table runner. This gives you some room for sashing and/or borders to complete your design.

Label:  Be sure to include a label with your name and the name of your creation on the back.

Deadline and Judging: Turn in completed quilts at the beginning of the May 6th meeting at Faith Lutheran Church. Judging will take place during this meeting.

Let the creative juices flow!
