Hashtag on Your Social Media: #FabricGardenQuiltChallenge
Your challenge quilt must include each of the three challenge fabrics (see quilt challenge page at www.fabricgarden.com for challenge fabrics). Purchase of a Challenge Kit containing a half-yard each of all three challenge fabrics, plus the challenge guidelines, is available at fabricgarden.com or in-store. Additional yardage of the challenge fabrics is available for purchase on fabricgarden.com and in-store. All three of these fabrics must be used in the challenge quilt in a recognizable amount. You may add up to two additional fabrics of your choice.
Your Challenge Quilt must consist of front, batting and back, and be quilted (by machine or hand) through all layers, then bound. Techniques are your choice: pieced, applique, paper pierced, thread painting, embroidered, embellished to name a few.
Minimum perimeter is 120 inches. Maximum perimeter is 210 inches. The perimeter is calculated by adding the length all four sides.
Example: a 40 inch x 60 inch quilt would be 40 + 40 + 60 + 60 = 200 perimeter size - which is less than the maximum allowable perimeter of 210 inches.

If you are using a commercial pattern, other than your own design, permission from the designer to use the pattern must be included in your application when you submit your quilt photos, with credit to designer and all other persons involved with completing your quilt (longarm quilter, etc.)
