Challenge Luncheon

Yesterday was a holiday highlight for me...not only because I love seeing how Anne of Cottons 'n Wool has decorated her home but this year we have started the first of what I hope is an annual Challenge.  We asked each guest to bring something they completed in 2016 for a little Show 'n Tell.  Everyone deserves their moment of glory don't you think.  Then after they showed a quilt they completed, then showed and declared what project they want finished in 2017!

 


It was so much fun to see what projects we all were willing to declare as our 2017 Challenge project.  The projects were of a wide variety and in various states of completion.  Come Christmas 2017 we will come together and we will share if we were able to complete the project.  A little friendly competition is good for the quilter, LOL. I hope you enjoy the slide show of this fun quilting activity!
