Challenge Quilts for the Sun Prairie Heritage Quilt Show

Every year the Sun Prairie Heritage Quilt Show has a challenge quilt – my favorite of course!

This year the challenge was:  To create a wall quilt using the Challenge fabric provided featuring CIRCLES/CURVES pieced or appliqued in wall quilt.


  1. Challenge fabric must be visible on front.
  2. Must contain curved piecing or ruching or some other form of cures and circles.
  3. Quilts can be pieced, appliqued, mixed, 3-D, embellished or any other type.
  4. May use as many other fabrics as desired.
  5. Minimum size 20” x 20” and maximum size 24” x 24”
  6. All quilts must be quilted by hand or machine
  7. ALL stitching must be done by the quilt maker.
  8. Must have a 4” rod pocket.

Of course – I was in!

I finished my piece ‘Curvy Geese Trees’ for the first Project QUILTING Challenge.

While it didn’t win a ribbon, I still think it’s a pretty sweet quilt.  As I was making it I knew it wasn’t ‘curvy’ enough to make the ribbon placement but it made me happy and that’s what matters!


the fabric that had to be incorporated is the chevron red/yellow/blue/green/orange fabric.


Here is a collage of the ‘non-ribbon’ quilts!  Fun – right!?  I seriously love what challenges can bring out in folks!

And here is a picture of all the ribbon winners!  AMAZING!  I’m happy to say that the bottom right quilt, an Honorable Mention ribbon … was made by my mother-in-law!  Way to go Diane!  (btw … she ALWAYS beats me in these challenges … one of these years …)


And of course I picked up my fabric and challenge for next year.  I think the theme has to do with spring … I’m sure I’ll figure something out!

  1. Thanks for sharing your local quilt challenge competition. Wonderful to see all the creativity. So inspiring. And I love that you and your mother in law obviously share so much in common with your quilting interest, apart from everything else. But as you say a bit of healthy competition is no bad thing!
