Be sure to check out this year’s Cherrywood Challenge for 2018!
GOAL of the Challenge:
Prince Rogers Nelson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1958. A son of a pianist and a jazz singer, he wrote his first song when he was just seven years old. Prince was a musical innovator who was known for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence, extravagant dress and makeup, and wide vocal range. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. He has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
His iconic film “Purple Rain” was filmed in Minneapolis, home of the legendary First Avenue nightclub. Even though Prince could have lived anywhere in the world, he still called Minnesota home up until his untimely passing in 2016. Paisley Park, Prince’s studio, home and now museum, is just 200 miles from the Cherrywood Studio, making this an obvious choice for Cherrywood’s fourth contest.
The challenge is to take inspiration from Prince’s music, style, movies, and distinct look to create your own unique quilt using a limited color palette: Cherrywood’s gorgeous hand dyed fabric in saturated purples.
Push yourself creatively, think outside the box and create new fiber art.
The contest is open to anyone and everyone.
All the quilts will be the same color, fabric, size and theme. It will be fun to see the variety of submissions!
