Member Choice 2019 Challenge Theme
‘PAGE 20!’

Explanation: Take any NON-CRAFT magazine. Open it to Page 20. Take inspiration for your quilt and SEND RANA ( TWO PHOTOS: 1 of the magazine cover and 1 of the Page 20 you are using for inspiration. I will figure out a way to make tags. Don’t spend forever looking for the perfect Page 20. Go with what you see. Could be colors, could be an ad, could be an article, might be a photo—anything on that page from which you can take inspiration. 
General rules: Quilts must be no Less than 100” in perimeter. Maximum of 60” on any one side. 4” or larger hanging sleeve required. Label with Title and Artist Name and anything else you wish to add.
