The Tuesday Night Friends from Ann Arbor, Michigan, gather weekly to have quilting fun – and there was plenty of fun for them at the AQS QuiltWeek – Grand Rapids 2013 Ultimate Guild Challenge!
Last year, the Tuesday Night Friends Guild saw the challenge as an opportunity to do something fun together. After creating a set of rules for themselves based on the overall Challenge rules, they decided to capture the likenesses of familiar bugs in close-up views for their entry in the Challenge. Their group won 1st Place in the Ultimate Guild Challenge! Their entry was entitled “I’ve Got the Quilting Bug!” A glance down their row of quilted wallhangings in the challenge was like a walk through a grassy field.
Here’s your opportunity to see all the bugs. AQS Contest Coordinator Andrea Ray speaks with the Tuesday Night Friends on this video, giving each quiltmaker the opportunity to describe her technique.
Will they return next year? They’re already brainstorming ideas!
