Miami Valley Quilters' Guild

An Ohio Quilt Guild for Quilters and Fabric Artists in the Dayton, Ohio, Region

     Each year members of the Miami Valley Quilters Guild are "challenged" to undertake a unique quilting project.  Following instructions set by the Challenge chair, members are invited to create their entry, sometimes involving specific colors or themes, but always allowing for a variety of techniques and styles to foster creativity.  To complete the Challenge, members exhibit their quilts at a guild meeting where members of the group vote on their choices in a variety of categories.

     The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild is more than just a club, we are a diverse group with more than 200 members from all areas of interest and all quilting skill levels. Members include quilters, quilt collectors, quilting teachers, designers and those simply interested in the art and craft of quilting. Members of the group have varied interests: traditional quilts and fabric art - hand piecing and machine work - long-arm machine quilting, home machine quilting and, of course, hand quilting.


2009 Challenge Instructions

The purpose of the challenge was to use a photograph to help choose the colors for a quilted project - quilt, wall hanging, or other quilted item.

1.      Members purchased a packet for a nominal fee.

2.      The photo in the packet was to be used only to pick the colors for the quilt. One black, one white, one tan and/or one cream could be added as neutrals.  All other colors must come from the photo.

3.      Members could use any pattern to make their “quilt”, including jackets, purses, etc.  There was no size limitation.

4.      Items were judged by members and guests at the Octo br meeting by picture category.  There were 6 pictures – thus 6 categories.  Judging was to be based on color interpretation of the picture.

5.      First and Second prizes were be awarded in each category. 

If you are interested information about using photos for color choices here are some resources.
