  1. I love the quilt challenges because I am a new quilter and they make me think outside the box and try new things.

  2. I like challenges because they push you out of your comfort zone. So many of us (myself included) tend to use the same color palettes or the same style (i.e. traditional vs. modern) quilts and we are uncomfortable trying something new. This is a fun way to expand your horizons a bit. Who knows, you just might like it.

  11. I love the quilt challenge because they do just that, challenge me. I've always been a "safe" kind of girl, and this year my goal was to step out of my comfort zone and try new things, quilting being just one of those things. Each of these challenge projects has also taught me something about myself and my relationship with others and God. Thank you. My e-mail address is jantzis@ags-schools.org

  73. I love the quilting challenges because it motivates me to get things done. It has also changed some of the ways I look at my fabric. I've only done 2 challenges and both were done with fabric I've had for a very long time. I've always looked at them and just passed them by never knowing what to do with them. Funny but they both inspired my first 2 challenges. I'm so pleased to have not only finished 2 projects I love but, done them using fabrics I would not have other wise ever used.
