40th Anniversary Quilt Challenge
We are presenting our 40th Anniversary Quilt Challenge, "Stir what you got!". It will be a fun way to share our talents and give comfort to children in our community. To inspire you, we will be giving away
$1,400.00 in Creations' gift certificates to the winners.
We are all busy with projects, but to take time to make a quilt for
a child you will never meet is what quilting is all about. We so appreciate those who have chosen to help the kids in our county.
This is how it works. Come by the shop and purchase one of our $15.00 strip sets like those in the photo. These contain at least 3 yards of fabric in various strip widths that are loosely coordinated. Use it in combination with your own fabric to create a quilt. Completely finish the quilt, turn it in to Creations by
March 12th, 2018 and have a chance to win one of our gift certificates.
We will display the quilts at The Main House, our retreat center,
March 15th - 17th in celebration of our 40th Anniversary. Winners will be determined by viewer's choice. There are no categories so any form of piecing, applique, embroidery will be appreciated. The only requirement is that you use a recognizable portion of the strip roll you select, either on the front or back. We encourage you to enter as many quilts as you would like as they will all go to the Rainbow Room in Kerrville. Each entry must be accompanied by the official entry form which is given with each bundle purchased. All of the donated quilts will stay within our county.
Your quilts will go to children so we are suggesting that the size be no smaller than 40" wide and no longer than 70" tall. These are just guidelines. All quilts will be loved.
Prizes will be gift certificates to Creations.
First Place -- $400.00
Second Place -- $300.00
Third Place -- $200.00
Fourth Place -- $100.00
Choices 5 - 10 will each receive a $40.00 gift certificate
As a special thank you, the one who enters the most finished quilts will receive a $200.00 gift certificate to Creations. Every person who turns in a finished quilt will receive a coupon for 40% off the purchase of one packaged batting. We will accept any quilts for the donation, but only those accompanied by our official entry form will be eligible for gift certificates.
Although each person can win only one gift certificate, we hope you will enter often. (Remember, there is a special gift certificate for the one who enters the most finished quilts.) We have some great prizes, but the best satisfaction is in sharing your talents to help the children in our community. We all recognize the comfort a quilt can give.
The Rainbow Room is a "store" that CPS case workers can go to and select new items that have been donated or purchased through donations. These include mostly the essentials, but what a wonderful opportunity to have quilts available for selection as well. The Rainbow Room is funded totally by donations.
Come by and pick up your bundle and get started on your donation to this wonderful cause. Help us celebrate 40 years by helping others. To read more about our quilt challenge, the Rainbow Room, and how our challenge got it's name, visit our blog at

If you can't come to the shop, we would still love to have you participate. Just call us at 830-896-8088, we'll pick you a bundle and even pay the postage to get it to you!
