How It Works:

To add to the fun and provide more opportunities to win prizes, 3 Hens is hosting a Solstice Panel Quilt Challenge!

  1. Quilters are challenged to use the Solstice panel in a creative way to make a quilt no larger than 60”x 60”. The quilt top must be made of 100% Stonehenge fabrics from the Solstice Anniversary collection with the option of including the Gradations Oxidized Copper palette and the Robin’s Egg green SKU 39300-79.
  2. The quilt backing can be any fabric of your choice.
  3. The quilt must be finished-quilted and bound. The binding must be a Stonehenge fabric.
  4. Each participating shop runs their own in-store contest and accepts their local entries.
  5. You must physically submit your panel quilt to your local participating Block Party quilt shop by November 30th 2019. 3 Hens will judge entries and pick a winner, who will receive a Stonehenge Precut prize!

Can’t wait to see those Panel Quilts!  Good Luck!!
