Summer Challenge 2014

Mary Willis is coordinating our 2014 Summer Challenge. The theme is "modern quilting" and the focus fabric is a solid color - the Pantone color of the year: Radiant Orchid. Mary supplied a fat eighth of fabric along with the directions - if you need one you can pick one up at one of the Saturday day camps this summer. The sample fabric is Kona "cerise". Attached here are the challenge directions.
