The amazing women of Ruby Star Society created a panel using their beloved designs to help us make beautiful masks. But it seems that the time of mask making might be behind us, and now we have fabric with samplings of classic Ruby Star designs that are just sitting in our shop, begging to be used.
THE CHALLENGE: Create an original work using a piece of all twenty fabrics represented in the panel. Your work can be a quilt (40"x40" maximum size), a bag, a garment, home decoration. You can use the panel to upcycle something you already own. Anything you can make using the fabric panel is eligible. You may use other fabrics, but you must use ALL twenty designs on the panel.
REQUIREMENTS: The cost of the panel is $10. You must purchase the panel on our website or in our store in advance of the start date of the program. Panels can be picked up in the store on Wednesday, February 1st. If your panel is to be shipped to you, it will be mailed on February 1st. (We have a limited number of panels. Please be sure to order ahead!)
ELIGIBILITY: This challenge is open to all members of the quilting community.
SUBMISSION: Entries must be brought to the store by Friday, March 31st. Please do not put your name on your work as voting will be anonymous. Your work will be assigned a number and be displayed in the store.
VOTING: Your wonderful creations will be on display in the store for two weeks. Customers will be given a ballot with each in-store purchase. Winner(s) will be determined by popular vote by store customers.
AWARD: A fabulous fat quarter bundle of Ruby Star Society fabrics and a $50 store gift card. We hope to increase the size and number of prizes based on the number of entries to our challenge.
