a quilt square challange

Last weekend we went to Winona County Fair - there was sooo much to see.

Is this not the best idea for a decoration outside the Home Economics Building!

Here is the idea

A few months before the fair, the local quilt shops had fair books for the taking and a small package that shoppers could purchase for about 8 or $10.

Each package had 3 identical fabrics.

The challange was to create a quilt block form the fabrics. Only one additional fabric COULD be added if needed.

The blocks were entered and judged at the fair.

Then after the fair a local guild will be finishing the project and the quilt will be auctioned off with proceeds going to a local charity.

Sorry for the bad pics - it was hot and my hands were full but here they are.....

I'm thinking next year I want to try this.
