McCall's Quilting Quilt Design Star™ 2011

McCall's Quilting Quilt Design Star™ 2011

 

We provided the Challenge 3 finalists with the following criteria for their Challenge 3 quilts:

Your third and final challenge is to create a completed quilt, not just a quilt top.

Your design:

  • must be inspired by the lyrics to any well-recognized song
  • must be at least 24˝ square
    • it may be larger
    • it may also be another shape than square (e.g. rectangular, hexagonal, circular, etc.) as long as total surface is at least 576 square inches (24″ x 24″ or larger)
  • must have been started no earlier than September 9, 2011
  • may be pieced, appliquéd, or mixed techniques (others can work on your quilt, including sewing, quilting, and/or binding, but you must be the sole designer)
  • should be quilted and bound
  • should convey who you are as a designer
