Half square triangle challenge quilts to be on display at February meeting

Half square triangle quiltsOur Half Square Triangle (HST) Challenge is concluding at the February 20th meeting. Members accepting this challenge were asked to create a quilt using any design, pattern or layout they choose just as long as HST’s are the main focus of their quilt. There were no size requirements, so you could make this quilt as big, or as small as you wanted. All members are eligible to enter this challenge. So, if you’re a fast quilter, you still have a few (very few, but still, a few) days left to complete your entry. Reminder: Quilts being entered into this challenge must be completed including backing, quilting, and binding. Prizes will be awarded to three quilters.

The February meeting will be on Tuesday, February 20th, starting at 7 pm at the King City Clubhouse, 15245 SW 116th Ave, King City, OR.
