- There will be 5 borders or rounds. One per month for the first 3 months (March, April, May) and one every 2 months to complete the last 2 borders. Quilt must be finish to the top stage to compete in exhibit.
- Viewer's choice voting and prizes at the presentation meeting.
- A new set of directions shall be announced, then found on the blogspot and in the newsletter.
 - Any questions or comments please contact Elena Acosta at  or at 985-640-7904

The Rules:
Center block: The center block can be a square or rectangle up to 20" on a size finished.  There is no size limit besides this.  There can be a border of plain fabric (no blocks) surrounding the center block.
 - The borders should be between 3" and 6" wide.
 - Each border should be made of the block unit given in that month's instructions.
 - The unit or block can be the only block present in the border (no other blocks should be included).
 - The units can be placed "on point" or on in any arrangement that is consistent with the previous rules. 
 - Blocks of plain fabric (no piecing) can be included.
 - The shape of the blocks can be modified in any way as long as it can be recognized as the type of block asked for (examples: a rectangular 4 patch, an uneven nine patch, etc.).
 - Modifications or additions to make the blocks look like something specific, like adding trunks or stems to make the blocks look like flowers or trees will be accepted.  (Applique and embroidery)
- Your exhibit quilt top must have the minimum of all instructed borders. You may add more borders and finish/quilt as you wish. 

UFO Challenge...
            Each guild member who wishes to participate will take one of unfinished projects, complete it, and bring it to show at the August 2016 meeting to compete for prizes. 

            Here are the rules:

1.         The UFO must have been purchased and planned, but not completed, prior to January 1, 2016.  
2.         Quilts must be completed to the top stage.
3.         Due to space limitations, there is a limit of one (1) quilt or other project (such as wearable art) per participating guild member.
4.         The completed UFO's (that are actually no longer UFO's) will be brought to and shown at the August meeting. 
5.         A prize will be given for viewer's choice, as well as for the oldest project completed.

            Please participate in this worthwhile challenge and free up some of that space for new projects!  If there are any questions, call Suzanne Elliott at (225) 315-4096 or email her at .
