Challenge 2024





This challenge is based on use of the color wheel. Most of us are familiar with the color wheel whether we use it or not. Any way you look at it color is one of our dynamic tools when it comes to design or pleasure in achieving our end product. By limiting our palette unique challenges and results can occur. The premise is to use only two base colors with whatever and how many shades of them you choose. 

        There are 4 color options ~





And the classic opposite BLACK AND WHITE

           Note: Binding can be any color ~


Your design may be traditional, modern, or art.

Desert Guilds Quilt Show




Our 2022 show was a great show. It was wonderful to be back and out with other quilters.  The quilts were truly amazing and really challenged the ribbon presenters as to which quilt they should choose to recognize as being exceptional.  The vendors offered quite a variety of product and inspiration to the attendees.  And in 2022 the guilds added a booth to sell members quilts.  It turned out to be a very popular booth and did well.  The Guilds' Boutique Booth also had a variety of wonderful handmade items for sale.


In addition to the Challenge quilts and Miniature quilts display, Coachella Valley and Pass Patchers displayed their "Faces" quilts.  


The Desert Guilds Quilt Show Committee is back meeting and have started to plan and organize our 2024 show.  While you wait to see what will be shown in 2024, enjoy the quilts selected by the attendees (Viewers' choice), vendors, committee members, and executive board to be given ribbons.  


Put Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2, 2024 on your calendar and join us at the Pavilions in Palm Springs for another spectacular show.
