the guild members prepare the brochures while waiting for the racks to be set up.

The guild challenge

We had 8 items this year, all using our challenge fabric.Three of them were clocks (inspired by the clock fabric, no doubt!) and three members said they almost made clocks…popular item!

People’s Choice was the French Braid Quilt by Ellie Tinko.
