They give everyone the same fabric to use and the same rules. Here are the swatches of the fabric everyone received that wanted to participate. We could add 4 more fabrics if we wanted, we were supposed to base it around the theme of PUMP UP THE COLOR, the perimeter couldn't be over 140", and you had to use some of every fabric they gave us. The line of fabric was pinkish purplish, green, red, and brown. EEEWWWWWW!!
Here are a few of the other challenge quilts. It was VERY interesting to see what everyone else came up, since we all had the same fabric and the same rules. The quilt to the left of ours won first place, even though it is WELL beyond the 140" rule. Dang them! Oh well, it was super fun staying up late with crazy quilting ladies working on a project.
