the web site after the deadline. Don't send us the quilts, just email us the
pictures and information about the original quilt and the challenge one.

Have fun with this great way to continue a legacy of quilt making. Our guild
had a challenge like this a few years ago, and the results were very exciting!
One family antique quilt was falling apart, and the quilter made an exact replica
of it, as it would have been when it was a new quilt.
