2019 Southern Belle Challenge Trash to Treasure What does that mean? ... If you accept this challenge, you will be required to make a quilt no large than 30"x30". Quilting must be done on your Statler Stitcher. Most go to retreats, workshops, sew-ins, or sew with friends. When you do, ask for their leftovers, check out the waste bins. Selvages are a great thing to request. You have months of collecting to do. Only background and backing may come from your stash or be purchased. Use the features of CS and any tips and tricks you have learned coming to Belle. Remember: One man's trash is another man's treasure. Please provide a before and after picture with a brief write up explaining your quilt to Lee Ann Lively at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 1st, 2019. If you have questions please private message Lee Ann Lively.
