A design was created using the State of Illinois block. (which has become the logo for the guild) Fabric packs were made available at a local quilt shop. Cutting directions were handed out. We were given 6 months to complete our wall hanging. The results were stunning. So many great ideas, all for the same quilt.
The finished quilts were sent as a group to the Machine Quilters showcase in Overland Park, KS the following year. You can see the results of the challenge here: CLICK for Same but Different album
