2019 Challenge Quilt
​Fly Quilter's Fly
This year's challenge features a well loved and traditional block, Flying Geese. The challenge quilts will be displayed and judged at the April meeting.

There are no size requirements for this year's challenge, so here we go:

Your quilt must have at least one recognizable flying geese block in the quilt as well as at least 6 square inches of turquoise. The fabric can be a solid, batik or can read as a solid.

The 6 inch square can be cut into smaller pieces as you wish.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with Chelane Priller at 517-525-0906 or chelane.priller@gmail.com. .

Let your imagination run wild and fly!

Bingo Card
Using 2 ½” squares, construct a bingo card, 5 squares x 5 squares. Use the subjects below to pick squares. You need only 25, so select what works from your stash. Place them randomly. Only you need to be able to recognize the squares. Put WHITE as the middle square.  You may bring more than one card, but will only play on one.

We will play bingo on the “cards” for door prizes, so you’ll need a “card” to win. When the day is over the “cards” will be collected and turned into a donation quilt (one or more).

Capitol City Quilt Guild (CCQG) was organized in March, 1984, to encourage fellowship, cooperation, and learning among area quilters and to promote public appreciation for creativity and high standards for quilting.  CCQG is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization giving to the community education, hosting quilt shows to spread the art of quilting.  The Guild members make and donate quilts for various charities and as well as provide free education seminars for the public on the art of quilting.
