The Carrefour Europeen du Patchwork - The patCHquilt 30th Anniversary Quilt Challenge
The European Patchwork Meeting in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, France had a wonderful exhibit. Swiss quilt group patCHquilt was celebrating their 30th anniversary by putting on a showcase of 100 challenge quilts for the occasion. The challenge was open to all members of the group of every skill level and each quilt had to adhere to the following criteria:
Works must be original, not from a kit and must include a red border.
They must be 30 cm wide, 120 cm long, and displayed portrait style.
The quilt must include at least 1/2 of the Edelweiss fabric (that each person received), and feature a piece of that same fabric that is 10 cm x 10 cm in size.
