We are getting excited that International Quilt Festival/ Cincinnati is just about 6.5 weeks away (April 11-13), and we want to make sure attendees participate in our new opportunity!
Introducing our Ohio Star Quilt Challenge
• Make a 9.5″-square unfinished block (so that when we quilt it it will be 9″ finished) where the theme is a variation of the Ohio Star. We welcome modern, traditional, and arty variations. Limit one block per person.
• Stick to red and white as your color scheme.
• Sign your unfinished quilt block with a permanent marker somewhere on the front of the block.
• During show hours, bring your 9.5″-square unfinished block to our Design Wall on the show floor just inside the exhibit hall.
Once quilted, this Ohio Star quilt will be donated to a local Cincinnati charity next spring. All those who make a quilt block will have the opportunity, at this year’s show, to vote for a local charity where they would like to see the quilt donated. We will announce the winning charity at next year’s Quilt Festival in Cincinnati (2014), where we will also have the finished quilt on display. We hope you’ll be a part of this fun and unique challenge!
