 The blocks are made as donations to be used in a larger quilt for the selected agency. The block will be of a chicken, designed by Jean Bailey and the pattern will be available at the July meeting.  Each block submitted will be rewarded with an entry for a chance to win a raffle basket.

The challenge (A small finished quilt) :

The theme for this year will be called "Chix Run Wild". The finished quilts will be hung side-by-side at the quilt show.
The rules are:
Size must be 18 inches by 24 inches. 18" (across the top)  x 24" (down the length of a side)
The quilt needs to have a fence, any kind of fence, that goes from the left border to the right border. The fence must be 3" high on both borders.  When the quilts are hung at the quilt show, the fence from one quilt will be aligned with the fence of the neighboring quilt.
