R3 Challenge

Region 3 Challenge

All About You

Just in case you don’t have enough to do, Region 3 has launched its own challenge for our members.

We want to see a piece that tells us something about what you think is important or significant in your life.  It can show anything you like – a special beauty spot, a favourite vegetable, maybe something to do with your family or show something that you enjoy doing – the possibilities are endless!

The Challenge is to ensure that somewhere in your entry you use at least three shades of the same colour.  Like Paul Daniels (nearly) said. “pick a colour, any colour!”.

Your piece should be the size of an A4 sheet of paper, roughly 12” x 8 1/2”.  It can be either landscape or portrait (widthwise or lengthwise).  It must consist of 3 layers; a top plus wadding and backing and be bound.  It can be quilted or embellished in any way you choose and can be made using the technique of your choice – obviously, the style is completely up to you.

For now, we would like photos of your finished work 
Please email these to reg3@quiltersguild.org.uk
By 31st July 2020

Existing entries appear in the gallery below


As soon as you are safely able to, please post your finished quilt to:

As yet we have not determined a deadline for finished quilts - please watch this space or see our Facebook Group for updates:

We will be putting all entries on our Facebook page and in the gallery below, where possible - we will be creating a small, online catalogue of all entries.  It is possible that some of the colour shades will not be obvious but everyone’s work will be on display at the next Regional Day to give you as much chance as we can to see what brilliant members we have and how they have completed the challenge. 

All work will be returned to you after the Regional Day.

We’ve not issued a challenge in a long while, so please give it a go and let us all see what is important to you at this time.
