2020 marked the 20th anniversary of the Boundary Bay Quilters’ Guild (BBQG) and, to commemorate this milestone, we held the “2020 Challenge”. Participants had 11 months to complete a quilt to be shown at the December 2020 meeting (via Zoom).
Quilts submitted for this challenge will be included in a special display at the BBQG’s 2022 Quilt Show to illustrate how far we’ve come in 20 years.
Theme – The traditional 20th Anniversary gift is CHINA. This could be interpreted in many ways as the jumping off point, i.e. a trip to China; Chinese designs on fabric; or … dishes.
Inspiration – Members were asked to look through their old books and magazines and their vintage fabric stash to find “something” that indicated what was being made in 2000.
Sizes – In keeping with the theme, the quilt sizes had to be divisible by 20 inches – i.e. 20 X 20, 20 X 40, 40 X 40, etc., with a minimum size of 20 X 20 and a maximum size of 60 X 60.
These were the submissions:
