Riley Blake Challenge Reveal


The Riley Blake Challenge reveal took place at the Monday, January 13 meeting. Everyone attending the meeting had the opportunity to step into another room to view all 11 entries across one wall. 

Here are those entries, in the order in which they appeared.











Sixteen Waterfront Park fat quarters and one yard of Kona were generously donated by Karen, and given to the "Viewer's Choice" winner: Quilt #1 by Linda.

Viewer's Choice second place recognition went to: Quilt # 9 by Beth.

Viewer's Choice third place recognition went to: Quilt #11 by Bette.

Photos were judged by Jill Guffy and Marny Buck, co-owners of Modern Quilt Relish, who selected a "Best Design" winner, based on criteria for modern quilt design. Quiltmaking techniques were not considered in their decision.

We offer grateful thanks to Jill and Marny for taking the time to study the photos and choose a winner!

This bundle of 15 Riley Blake fat quarter dots, generously donated by Linda, are being given as the "Best Design" award  to: Quilt #9 by Beth. Congratulations!
