Guild Challenge Results: A Novel Idea

What an amazing exhibit! The 13 pieces in the 2012 Choo Choo Quilters Guild Challenge, A Novel Idea, were thought-provoking and imaginative and definitely stretched the creative muscles of the quilters who responded to the Challenge.

The guidelines for the 2012 Challenge were to interpret a pre-determined sentence from a book or novel in a small quilt approximately 18" square. Any technique or combination of techniques could be used. Here are the interpretations and their sentence inspirations.
