The Great Shirt Challenge


The Gisborne Girls thought that you may like to join us in a bit of a challenge
 with a touch of fun.
      The Gisborne Quilters
      Great Shirt Challenge
          Idea lovingly stolen from the
   Sunbury Stitchers and Quilters Group

                   (With permission of course)

Image result for shirts
To be in this challenge you will need
followed by a touch of  IMAGINATION
And not forgetting 6 X 100% Cotton Shirts. 
These shirts will be cut up into 6 pieces 
and then 
distributed amongst the willing participants.

Use as much shirt fabric as you can for the front of the quilt.
 If you wish you may add ONE other fabric of your choice to 
help tie the shirt fabrics together – the amounts can be as much 
or as little as you want.

There is to be no dyeing of fabrics...although you may reverse
 the shirt fabric if you prefer the other side.

Backing will be a fabric of your choice.

Binding will be a fabric of your choice.
Under no circumstances are men to be harmed in any way 
when sourcing your shirt fabric. 
(Remember ladies you can look, bribe or barter  but don’t touch)

You will have 12 months to complete this task 
Starting on the 25th of August 2014
The end date to show your creation will be the 
     31st of October

     I will put up a link closer to the end date so that we can check 
     out your creations.

 So if you would like to join in the fun please have your shirts with you at the 
August Mill Rosie Meet where we will cut them up and then randomly disperse 
them amongst the players. Or if playing through the cyber world you have the
joy of using your own shirts.

Any questions please contact either Tracee or Marg
