  • These phrases must be drawn randomly from the Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Guild challenge list of more than 400 phrases. Members may draw 2 phrases and use their favorite for their quilt inspiration. This challenge is open to Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Guild members only.
  • Maximum of 160" perimeter
  • Challenge quilts will be judged and eligible for prizes.
  • Quilt means top, batting and backing. Embellishments are allowed.
  • Phrases do NOT have to be any where on the quilt top, but must be in the written description on the entry form.
  • Deadline for entry is July 1, 2018.
