                                   QCNYS CHALLENGE WINNERS
                              The Lines and Angles of New York State

The 24 entries in this year's challenge were exciting, varied and exhibited a grand array of quilting techniques with flair and expertise. Juror Eugenia Barnes exclaimed over each and every one while seeking to identify the twelve that will travel to various quilt shows over the 2016 show season.
