2023 Activities

Welcome to the Activities Page – we have so many activities planned for this year.

No Quilt Challenges or 2023 UFO Challenge this year since this is the year of the Quilt Show.

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge is something that will be done on your own. The Charm Square Swap, Birthday Fabric Raffle, Quilter’s Pal, Block of the Month Project, “Playin’ with Pinwheels” and Share Your Skill are activities planned for 2023.

All patterns and instructions can be found as attachments to the monthly newsletter, as well as on the Facebook page (Wildflower Quilt Guild | Facebook) and the guild website. (Wildflower Quilt Guild). Look for the activity tables on the lefthand side of the room during the guild meetings.

Please refer to Wildflower Yearbook for contact info on classes

Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2022/2023
Online Resource - superscrappy.blogspot

The RAINBOW SCRAP CHALLENGE is a fantastic way to use up your scraps! If you are new to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, this is something you do on your own.
Visit Superscrappy.com choose any pattern you wish to use. The idea is simple. You will collect together all the scraps that you can find of the assigned color and create some quilt blocks. You can make any size block you choose and any block design you choose. Just use up those colorful scraps! Some people choose to create one specific block each month, while others choose to create different blocks. The choice is yours!
Check out the So Scrappy website for ideas from other RSC quilters.What can you use these “rainbow” blocks for?
1.You can keep the blocks for yourself
2.Make them into donation quilts
3.Donate them to the Wee Care Bee to make into donation quilts
4.Donate them to the Quilt Show Boutique.
•At the end of the year, we encourage you to put your RSC blocks together to create a rainbow quilt. We will share these “rainbow masterpieces” at our April guild meeting the following year.

Charm Squares
Renee Owens - Coordinator

Guidelines for Charm Square Swap

Every month, or any months you want to participate, bring (24) 5” squares in a plastic bag with your name on the front. These may be the same fabric or different fabrics. During the meeting we will mix up the squares with others that brought squares. After the meeting pick up your bag to take home (24) new charm squares.

Each month will have a new Charm Square Theme as shown below:

Tammy Ferguson – Coordinator

This is a great way to clean out your stash of unwanted fabric, so you have more room for fabric that is new to you. It is also a great way to “win” new fabric at our monthly guild giveaway.

There are three (3) ways to win this fabric at the guild meetings.

Members who bring in fabric for this drawing, will get to put their name in for a chance to win.

Those having a birthday that month will have their name put into a separate drawing.

Anyone can purchase a chance to win for $0.25. There is no limit on the number of chances you may purchase, but each person can win only two (2) prizes at each meeting.

Any member who wants to contribute please bring items listed below in good quality quilting fabric.

Please place loose fabric, listed below in a quart size labeled baggies.

1 Panel piece (in baggie)

2 Fat quarters (in baggie)

½ yard of fabric (in baggie)

1 yd. spaced-out prints (in baggie)

2.5” Charm Square Pack

10” Layer Cake

5” Charm Square Pack

1 Jelly Roll

If you don’t have a baggie at home no problem, we will have some at the meeting. If you are not able to cut down to size no problem, we can take it home & cut it down for next time.


Judy McMahon – Coordinator

Quilter’s Pal is a fun activity that encourages members to get to know each other better. At the October and November guild meetings participants complete questionnaires and turn them in for the December drawing.

At the December meeting participants draw for their secret Quilter’s Pal. Every month you bring a fun gift for your Quilter’s Pal and your Pal will bring a gift for you. Place your gift in the Quilter’s Pal area, and try not to “get caught” by your Pal.

Your identity is kept secret until the Christmas party. This is the most fun meeting of the year, and part of the fun is revealing yourself to your Quilter’s Pal. You deliver your Christmas present in person to your Quilter’s Pal. It is customary to have a small thank you gift for the person who has given you the wonderful gifts all year.

As you are running around and shopping throughout the year, remember your Quilter’s Pal and pick up anything cute you might find.

Please stick to the recommended price limits for your gifts.


$10 - $15 for monthly gifts

$20 for the December gift

Playin’ with Pinwheels
Jan Rogers - Coordinator

This year we will be Playin’ with Pinwheels for our Block of the Month activity.  This such a fun project that you can customize anyway you want. 
 This Block of the Month project will last through December 2023. We will find a time during 2024 for a show and tell of all our finished creations.               Happy quilting and have fun!

Karen Woodham - Coordinator

In hopes of promoting quilting as a hobby, encouraging members to try new techniques, and hoping to offer fellowship with other members, we want to offer a NEW activity. If you have a particular skill or technique that you would be willing to share/instruct, please let Karen know and she will help you organize it.
I am offering this in the grid quilting technique starting this month. I will offer instructions at my home, at one of the bees, or some other space if interest outgrows my space. I am thinking 1 – 3 “students” at a time. Instruction time and place would be coordinated between you and your ”students.”

Current List of Skills Being Offered:

Definition: taking squares of fabric and adhesive grid interfacing to create traditional quilt blocks.
Would you like to learn the basics of grid quilting?
Learn how to adapt other blocks to create your own patterns.
