Okay, Clara, I have a question regarding submitting an entry for the Altzheimer's Challenge. Earlier this week I woke up with the idea of printing an 8x10 photo of my Sunbonnet Sue challenge block on an EQ7 fabric sheet so I could practice FMQ on it before I actually did so on my original design. If it turns out to be nice and I add all the fun embellishment stuff I plan to do, and the quilting gives the "illusion" that she and the treasure chest were pieced, would that be acceptable to finish nicely and send in?
I copied this from their website mainly about embelishing and size. Otherwise sounds really cool what you are doing. Clara
- Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts must be no larger than 9" x 12" No exceptions. Anything that hangs off the quilt (fringe, tassels, cording, handles, feathers, loops, etc.) must not extend beyond the 9" x 12" maximum size allowed.
- Quilts may be Alzheimer's-themed, but don't have to be. They DO have to be quilts: that's three layers, and the middle one is batting of some sort.
- Embellishments that can not withstand frequent stacking, sliding, shuffling against other quilts (or may harm other quilts that come in contact with them) are not allowed. No framed or mounted pieces.
