HMQS Design Challenges 2007~2011

Each year the Home Machine Quilting Show hosts a Design Challenge.  Sponsors supply the fabrics, and groups or individuals design and make quilts within certain rules and parameters.  On display during the show, the quilts are then auctioned to raise money for the show's charity of choice for that year. 

Here is a collection of the past 5 years' Design Challenge quilts, made by "The Midnight Quilters" (myself and two or more quilting friends).   Let's just say that some years are more "challenging" than others!
