Our Creative Challenge 2020 resulted in an exhibition of nine very varied entries. I have dedicated this page to a virtual exhibition for those that were not able to make it to The Quilting Shed in person to see the real thing. Hope you are all inspired. Enjoy!

Every Entry Pack contained 50 cm of each of the above fabrics, Lavinia – Blue and Regimental Stripe – Blue. They also contained a third coordinating 50 cm length of fabric and these varied in the packs to encourage people to go in different directions with their challenge.
