The Bountiful Mini Quilt Challenge
Presented by Art Gallery Fabrics and PMQG
PMQG was excited to collaborate with Art Gallery Fabrics on the Bountiful Mini Quilt Challenge. Bountiful was Sharon Holland’s Spring 2017 collection, and it's all about the beauty and scenery of Mid-West America.
The Bountiful Mini Quilt Challenge ran from May 18 through September 7, 2017. Art Gallery provided 10 fat quarters of Bountiful to 24 PMQG members to make a Modern Mini Quilt inspired by rustic elements that complemented the homey and earthy feel of Bountiful. The hashtag for social media posts was #BountifulMiniQuiltChallenge. A full description of the challenge, as well as the challenge rules and a list of the fabulous prizes Art Gallery provided to the winners can be found in the Guidelines.
The Mini Quilts were shown at the PMQG Member Quilt Showcase in October, and the winners, chosen by Art Gallery and Sharon Holland, were announced at the Showcase. The winners were:
