Today the Scrapbag Quilt artists hung their show, "Seeing Red" at the Library in Newtown, CT. The show will hang until Oct. 3. The challenge was to make a quilt 24 inches square interpreting the word red in any way , with the stipulation that the quilt be at least 50% red.
We do a different challenge every year, but this year our group has dwindled in size and we were afraid that we might not have enough quilts to make a good show, so we asked local members to make two, if possible, and invited alumnae to participate. Lynne, who has moved to Vermont, sent us two beauties and Anita, who is living in Arizona sent us one and five more from her local quilt group, the Back Street Mavericks, for a total of six wonderful pieces. We ended up having 20 quilts to hang and the diversity was amazing!
