The Cherrywood Challenge

Every year, Cherrywood chooses a theme and color palette and presents a challenge to quilters from all over the world. The challenge is to see what you can create using a very limited number of colors, and show of the beautiful suede look of our hand-dyed fabric.

  • Quilt must be 20-inches square
  • Quilts must use the designated bundle of fabric from Cherrywood
  • Quilts must take inspiration from the theme
  • Quilts can use any technique or embellishment, as long as the main focus is on the theme colors.
  • A panel of jurors selects a designated number of quilts from digital submissions for the Traveling Exhibit
  • Prizes are awarded
  • Traveling exhibit is displayed at quilt shows and galleries nationally (and sometime internationally!)
  • After the tour is finished, the quilts are returned to the artists

The Cherrywood Challenge is announce in October every year. Quilt are due for submission the following summer (dates vary).
