Regional Challenge - Treasures from the Earth

Region 8 Guild members only.

Theme: "Treasures from the Earth"

Our region is renowned for its rich heritage of archaeological finds, or perhaps you think of more natural treasures from our earth, for many years East Anglia was the grain basket of the country with golden corn on vast fields. What do you feel are the treasures from our earth? 

You do not need to limit your inspiration to East Anglia. 

We had so many fantastic entries in the Touch of Red Challenge for Blackthorpe 2019 we are really looking forward to a brilliant response to the regional challenge for our conference. Remember if you enjoy making it, we want to celebrate it, we DO NOT select pieces -  we celebrate all quilting styles and levels of experience.

Interestingly the National YQ Challenge for our conference will have the same titles so how exciting to see interpretations of the theme from 5 yrs to potentially 85yrs+.
