2011 Quilt Block Challenge announced PDF Print E-mail

Everyone is invited to take up the “Quilt Block Challenge.”
Each year the Perkins County Fair invites everyone to enter this special open class contest.  All entries for this contest must be made from the same pattern.  This year’s pattern is the Broken Wheel Block.
The pattern for the 2011 Challenge is available now at the Perkins County Extension Office and the Grant Tribune.  Participants are encouraged to use their imagination and make this block up in any manner and out of any type of material.  
Past challenge participants have made the quilt block from wood and paper, as well as the traditional fabric. Wall hangings, table runners, pillows and quilts are some of the possible projects that can be made—let the imagination soar!
