Flags of Freedom Challenge Rules


This ECQ Challenge begins in April and all finished items will be due at the July meeting.

Purchase a kit for $5 which contains one mini-flag block along with seven patriotic charm squares.

Use the kit and any additional fabrics of your choosing to make a patriotic- themed Quilted object. Your entry MUST include the mini-flag block somewhere in the finished piece (Put it on the back if you want to) but does not have to include the charm squares.

You may make additional mini-flag blocks in your own color preferences to add or include in your quilted item and incorporate your mini-flag within a block or by itself. YOU DECIDE!

There will be three categories: Minis, Just-the-Top, and Quilts

Minis: Shortest side measures less than 30" (pillows, table runners, place mats, mug rugs, quilted bags, wall hangings and garments can all count as minis) 

Just-the-Top: Unfinished quilt tops, any size from baby to bed

(Shortest side must be at least 30”)

Quilts: Finished quilts, any size from baby to bed

(Shortest side must be at least 30”) 



Each valid entry will receive one raffle ticket. A drawing will be held to choose one random winner in each category for a QIAD Gift Card.

In addition, there will also be one viewers' choice prize. All members in attendance at the JULY meeting will vote on their choice for the best project across all categories to win a QIAD Gift Card.
