As part of the Desert Guilds Quilt Show, there is a quilt challenge for members of all three guilds involved (Cactus Sewables, Pass Patchers, and Coachella Valley Quilt Guild).  This year's challenge was "Off the Beaten Path".  At our February meeting, members brought in their quilts and everyone at the meeting got to vote for the quilt they considered the best. The person with the most votes was Karen Lummus for her hiking scene in autumnal colors titled, PCT 2012. Betty Fernandez received the second most votes for her quilt titled, Making Tracks. This small quilt is a peaceful and beautiful beach setting. The third most votes went to Kathleen Herring for her very artistic work full of textures and even flying silk flags titled, On The Road to Manang. Other entries were, Treese Pflum with Quilt Therapy which depicts a modern spiraling walkway in multi colors, Susan Waltz with a whimsical neighborhood full of life and activity titled, Not Nebraska and last but not least Janna Calkin's with a quilt on a quilt called Painted Hills.
