Last September we had a one yard fabric exchange, using Kaffe Fassett fabrics. You can see a YouTube video of the Ripping and Passing exchange idea here. It was a fun activity although a bit chaotic! Many of our members bought their fabrics on our guild bus trip to Quilts at the Creek, at the Hyggeligt booth. And Chantal very generously donated 2 gift certificates for prizes.
After the exchange, members had at least 4 different fabrics, in decreasing lengths and were challenged to make something! No rules. Members who missed the exchange were challenged to make something with some Kaffe fabrics.
We had our show and tell at our June meeting and the projects were amazing. All so different, with many members challenging themselves with new techniques. Several members didn’t like their fabrics or their resulting projects, but others certainly did. A great success I think!
Should we do a challenge next year?
