QOTW 2011 Challenge Theme UPDATE!

Update regarding our 2011 Challenge theme:

A new theme was chosen for the QOTW 2011 Challenge Quilt Collection. The theme has been changed to Gates, the second place by member voting, because Movement is currently being used for a SAQA event.  The size must be 20” x 42” (vertical – portrait). Competed quilts are due at the September 2011 meeting.They will not be juried, but quilts must be the correct size and meet all the necessary requirements and standards.
