QUILT BLOCK CHALLENGE HOME ON THE FARM: YESTERDAY, TODAY & TOMORROW

 Thank you to everyone who participated in the IPM 2022 Quilt Block Challenge!

There were 72 quilt blocks completed and returned by the November 19, 2021 deadline. There were entriesQuilt Block Kit from Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan. It was delightful to see the diversity of styles. The creativity and talent that went into these works produced blocks that will make their mark in our community's history. 
To see all of the blocks that were made, watch the YouTube video

The blocks will be used to create the IPM 2022 Raffle Quilt, and then there will be another quilt made for the 2021-2022 Ontario Queen of the Furrow. Depending on how many blocks are needed for these two quilts will determine if a third project is undertaken.
