Gingham! What does this fabric sum up for you. The people at EQS have sent the full range of Michael Miller Gingham Fabric for our November Quilt Competition prize.
Gingham is a medium-weight balanced plain-woven fabric made from dyed cotton or cotton-blend yarn. It is made of carded, medium or fine yarns, where the colouring is on the warp yarns and always along the grain. So now you know. But what would you do with it?
This month we are throwing the competition wide open but remember, efforts are judged by your peers, so surprise them and make your entry stand out. And don’t worry if you are just a beginner .. we are hoping this time to see entries from all skills levels too.
As ever .. the quilts should be no larger than 42″ either side, but can be constructed from any technique, from applique to traditional, mixed textiles, a quilt, a coverlet or a wall hanging.
The first step is to post a picture of your quilt onto the UK Quilters United Facebook page as soon as you are ready .. and don’t forget to add #November19competition as your tag so we can find your entry.
On the 22nd November we will choose the six quilts with most likes and they will appear here on this page for our members to choose their favourite.
The winner will receive the pack of fabric shown above and the runner up a pair of tickets to a Grosvenor Show of their choice.
A liker from FB and a voter from our website will also win a pair of tickets each to a Grosvenor Show of their choice.
The two winning quilts will be exhibited at the 2019/20 Members Choice Exhibition which will be touring with Grosvenor Shows next year starting in August at the 2020 Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate.
