In June 2012, the members of the Palouse Patchers Quilt Club, based in Moscow, Idaho, began working on a “challenge” using the theme of “Water, Earth, Wind and Fire”. Each participant chose an envelope which contained one of the four “elements" as well as the parameters for the quilts. Everyone was encouraged to use their imagination to depict their chosen element. Any and all techniques could be used to complete the quilts, including all types of embellishments. The challenge allowed the quilters to express themselves creatively and try techniques that they might not have used in the past.
Artisans at the Dahmen Barn is a non-profit creativity center on highway 195 in Uniontown, in the big white barn behind the famous iron wheel fence. The facility is fully handicap accessible and has no daily admission fee. It is open Thursday through Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. Information: www.artisanbarn.org or 509-229-3414.
