Our theme for this year’s challenge is flashback to the 1960s.   Beatles, peace signs, hippies, tie dye, long hair, rock & roll, being hip or being square.  Make your own project around a 1960s theme, using a commercial pattern or one of your own creation.  To participate, fill out an entry form and submit it to a participating quilt store with your project by April 13.  Wall hangings, totes or other interpretations of a 60s theme no larger than 60” X 60” will be accepted.
