Every two years, Quilter’s Crossing, Inc., Palm Harbor encourages its members to create a challenge quilt based upon specific requirements. This year’s challenge, Fly Me to New York, is inspired by two traditional quilt blocks, New York Beauty and Flying Geese, and honors the guild’s 35th anniversary (March 2020) with finished quilt size of 35” x 35”.
The challenge quilt should be an original, innovative interpretation of the traditional blocks, and recognizable in some way as related to those blocks. Any fiber material may be used and quilters were encouraged to dip into their stash of fabrics.
