Eyesight—especially hindsight—may be the first thing you think when you consider the words 20/20 Vision, NeedleChasers’ quilt show theme and challenge this year. And surely we expect many excellent, creative, eye-popping riffs on eyes! But don’t forget other meanings of vision, such as “a vivid, imaginative . . . anticipation” of the future, or “a scene . . . of extraordinary beauty.” This year’s challenge is a chance for deeply personal expression.
As usual, the finished quilt must measure no more than 100 inches in perimeter and can be smaller. This size limit makes the 20/20 Vision Challenge the perfect occasion to try new ideas and techniques of construction or embellishment. Bring pieces to regular meetings for show and tell as you finish them. The deadline is August 26.
Challenge yourself, and have fun!
