Challenge Quilt Rules:
Challenge rules, oh challenge rules, what will they be?
Continue reading onward and you shall see.
All of your challenge must be yours and yours alone.
Sorry quilters, however, this hard rule is written in stone.
Now keep your project a secret, ever so close to your heart
Surprise us all at the end, a quilt made from pieces and parts.
Somewhere in your creation we need to find
A pieced heart or hearts, no more than nine."
Heart or hearts are of assorted reds, pieced together might we see
A finished heart or hearts in inches, a minimum of 3 x 3.
More colors - to your quilt please do add many or a few
Go wild with an array of colors, it's up to you.
For a tad bit of fun include something different.
A plant and/or a tree, just make them significant.
About those pesky borders, here's our rule for today-
Though not necessary, whatever you choose, why not add some applique.
When added all together for outside measurement to be ideal
You be sure they measure a total of 78-92", that's the deal.
My dear quilters in making this challenge, do follow your heart,
It shan't be difficult so I beg of you... get ready, go, go, and start!
Any questions or clarification, please contact the Quilt Show Chair.
