THE CHALLENGE

What can you create with just eight colors?

THEME  

Use your insight and personal style to design the quilt. We will select quilts based on originality, creativity, design, impact, workmanship and overall variety of the exhibit.

SIZE

Finished measurements must be 20 inches square. The name of the game for this challenge is continuity, so we need this exact size.

COLOR

The challenge is to use a limited color palette. Your entry must use ONLY the eight colors of fabric in the official Challenge Bundle. Thread color, ink/paint color and colors of embellishments are not limited in their color.

FABRIC

The entire quilt top and binding must be made out of the Cherrywood Challenge Bundle. No other brand of fabric may be added (with the exception of backing). This challenge is about using your talents to show off the suede texture and color of Cherrywood.

TECHNIQUE & EMBELLISHMENTS

ADD COLOR WITH EMBELLISHING TECHNIQUES: quilting, thread painting, embroidery, couching, beading, fabric painting, drawing, etc! Any technique or fabric manipulation is acceptable as long as it maintains the official challenge colors and character of a textile quilt. Embellishments must stay within the 20-inch size. Must withstand packing and shipping.

The symbol of the poppy was first associated with the First World War. This bright red flower became a common sight to see on the battlefields of northern France in 1915. Soldiers on the Western Front would even send pressed poppies in letters to their loved ones. 1915 saw fierce fighting at places like Loos and Ypres in France and Belgium. Poppies grew well in the churned-up soil of the battlefield shell craters.

The constant bombardment not only churned up the soil, and brought seeds to the surface but the nitrogen of the explosives helped to fertilise the earth and give the poppies enough nutrients to grow and bloom.

In 1915, after losing a friend during the Battle of Ypres, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, a Canadian doctor, wrote a poem inspired by the colorful display of poppies that had sprung up on the battlefields. It's called 'In Flanders Fields'
