At the lecture, and exciting Guild challenge was announced. Members of the Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild were given samples of Jay's Habitat line and are challenged to make a 12" original block. He will choose 3 winners that will be featured in a national quilting magazine. I'm not really a block designer, so I'll just have to wing it on this one! I have a couple of ideas and, since the deadline is Tuesday, I'd better get sewing! All of the blocks created by our Guild will be sewn into quilts that we are donating to the Japan relief effort, so winner or not, my block will be going to a good cause!
