Let’s Make Star Magic

The 2019 Quilt Show, The Magic of Quilts, is issuing a challenge to members of the West Houston Quilter’s Guild to create a quilt or wall hanging highlighting stars to be entered or shown in the 2019 Quilt Show.

For this challenge we will be exploring the many ways of making and arranging stars. We will be looking for “Construction” and “Originality”.

The quilts will be shown at the February guild meeting where Guild members will vote on their favorite. 

The winning quilts will receive a special “Guild Choice” ribbon to be displayed on the quilts at the quilt show.
