"By George" Challenge

Las Colcheras Quilt Guild has an annual President's Challenge. The challenge for 2010 was titled "By George".  The fabric for the challenge was designed by George Mendoza, a blind artist living in Las Cruces. The quilts were displayed at the Brannigan Center in Las Cruces. Because of a rare cold front that put the area in a state of emergency the opening reception was postponed by several days so I missed seeing all the quilts on display. I was at home battling frozen water pipes and waiting for a plumber. Ribbons were awarded but I did not receive a ribbon. However, I did receive a greater honor (in my opinion). Mine was one of the quilts chosen to travel around the US with the fabric manufacturer.
