We are very excited about announcing the 2010 4-H Quilt Challenge!This year's challenge fabric is entitled "Barnyard Buddies" by Amy Bradley and includes whimsical barnyard animals on a 4-H green background.
The 4-H Quilt Challenge is open to all 4-H members, not just seniors. Entries maybe individuals,teams or clubs. Adults may help with the quilt design and construction, but a majority of the work needs to be completed by the 4-H members. Quilts may have any design or them but must incorporate some sort of 4-H identification into the quilt top. Completed quilts are donated to a charity (determined by the quilt makers) following Texas 4-H Roundup in June.
