Challenge quilts

Finally, I am able to show the quilts from our recent challenge.
Last Nov, during the quilt show up in Nashua NH, the wonderful ladies of among the quilt guild I belong to, had a quilt challenge.
We exchanged 10 FQ (fat quarters- if ya didn't know- this probably didn't explain any better)

as part of the challenge we had to ADD 10 FQ and make a quilt top. Then we returned the quilt top to the person who gave us the original 10 FQ's.
Our deadline was the Machine Quilters Expo (MQX) last week in NH.

We knew who we were making FOR- but didn't know who HAD ours.
Only after everyone got theirs could we reveal the quilts.

I quilt with a GREAT group of ladies.....
