Pieces & Patches: 2023 Guild Challenge

Quilting is more than a process of stitching together layers or fabric, wool or cotton. It is an ancient art practiced in many different cultures throughout the world!

In America, quilting gained popularity starting in the mid-1700’s and has become an important part of our history and heritage.

Pieces and patches quilt guild was established in 1990 when 20 fabric artists and quilters decided to create a group that would meet to share in the desire of promoting quilting and improve our quilting abilities. The guild now boasts over 130 members.

Each year, Pieces and Patches proposes a challenge to Guild members. The 2023 challenge was:

What can you do with a log cabin block?

Log cabin block/blocks could be any size, any color combinations, any variation. The quilt artists had to use their imagination, no pattern, to create their works if art. The finished quilt must measure 30 inches by 30 inches.
