Three times per year OCMQG challenges its members to create a quilt focused on a specified theme or element of modern design. Based on votes by the membership, three quilts are awarded a prize ribbon and gift card.

Once a year we hold a challenge where all the quilts entered are donated to a non-profit organization in Orange County, California.

Current Challenge – August – Mini Quilts

Sometimes smaller is better! For our August guild challenge, create something mini.
