The Blues Challenge

MArQ Challenge 2011 – The Blues

Theme: Participating artists may interpret the theme “the Blues” in any manner they wish: ‘blue’ being defined as a color, emotion, musical style, phrase, etc.,  or any variation of such definition.

Required for Unity of Group: The color blue in any variation in fabric and embellishment must be used for at least 50% of the visible quilt top. (ie. what you see when looking at the quilt straight on: backing can be blue, but doesn’t count towards the 50%.)

These are 7 of the quilts from the Blues Challenge.  8 of them were judged into a group that was sent to the Ultimate Guild Challenge in Knoxville. I am not able to post those 8 on the blog as of yet.  We should know sometime next month if we got juried in or not.  Last year MARQ took first place..!!
