The third annual Quilt Block Challenge was Red Hot! Forty six blocks were submitted for the challenge. Contestants used 3 to 5 fabrics with one of those designated as the focus fabric for their block. All fabrics were included in the kit that was provided by Connie’s Quilt Shop.
Blocks were displayed at the 2011 Linn County Fair July 6- 11th. The blocks were judged for the Viewer’s Choice and received a $25 gift certificate from Connie’s Quilt Shop. The 2011 Quilt Block Challenge winner was block #25, Diane Kula of Springville.
Later the blocks will be made into a quilt to be raffled off at the 2012 fair. All proceeds will go towards improvements of The Linn County Fair.
The 2010 Quilt Block Challenge blocks were made into a beautiful quilt that was raffled off this year. Lois Wild of Anamosa, was the winner of the 2011 quilt raffle.
