Each year there is a Challenge fabric that you may purchase a fat quarter of at the show. The following year, you submit a quilt to the show made from that fabric.
Last years challenge fabric was Emily Herrick's Bottle Caps from her Going Coastal collection.
Since Emily is a local, I asked her to come and judge the Challenge category and choose her favorite.
I made her promise that she would be impartial and chose her favorite.... even if it was mine ;D
You can see ALL of the challenge quilts HERE on Konda's blog.
You can read all about the making of this quilt HERE.
