The big event for all Palouse Patchers is the annual Quilt Show held in April.  The show has been an annual event since 1981 and just gets better every year.  A beautiful raffle quilt is made each year and tickets are sold at the fair and up to the end of the show.  The raffle quilt is displayed at local businesses and the quilt show.  The lucky winner is drawn near the end of the show.  Proceeds from the show help fund our educational events and are also dispersed to a variety of community organizations with the approval of the membership.

Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge and Award

35th Annual Palouse Patchers Quilt Show

The Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge

2016  Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge - Bye - Bye  Nine Patch

The Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge was established in memory of beloved Palouse Patcher, Janet Freitag, who passed away too early in her life from cancer.  Her  husband created a fund to support this challenge in her memory. The Challenge is open only to members of  Palouse Patchers.  There is a $50 prize for each year's winner!  This year's rules include any design using a Disappearing Nine-Patch pattern.  All entries must be designated as a Janet Freitag Challenge entry in order to be considered for the award.  The entries for this Challenge will be hung together so that they can be easily found for viewing and judging.  Only Palouse Patchers members are eligible to enter this challenge and the winner will be selected by special ballot of Palouse Patchers members during the Friday Family Night viewing prior to the Quilt Show.  For more info, contact Madeline Martin at


About the Challenge and Award

The Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge and Award was instituted in memory of former Palouse Patcher, Janet Freitag, who died after a long bout with cancer.  Her husband Scott started the Janet Freitag Memorial Endowment Fund and each year a cash award of $50 is given to the winner of the Challenge.  The award money comes from the interest earned by the endowment principal. The Challenge and Award is only for Palouse Patchers members.


President’s Color Crayon Challenge

Our beautiful raffle quilt is titled “Color Dance”.  I understand that we are going to have a “Dance” challenge this year.  I would like to present a President’s challenge that picks up on the word “color”.

The fun of this challenge is to prove that any color combination works if you use enough of each color.  It is as if you are designing a fabric, so be brave and have a ball.

You will draw out 3 crayons sight unseen; this is your color scheme.  You can add some other colors, but when you hold your crayons up to your creation, those 3 colors should dominate.  You can make a large quilt, small quilt, table runner, handbag, sofa pillow, hat, jacket, pin cushion, pot holder, or even a doll for a little person that you love.

Please protect your crayons so we can tie them together to pin to your piece (if you have not already made them a part of your design) when we display them at our April Quilt Show.

"Dance" Challenge"

This challenge is inspired by Dance.  It can be a name of a dance, something that makes you dance, colors that dance; your imagination is the limit.  The finished quilt will be 20"x24", faced, not bound.  Instructions on how to face a quilt is located on our reference page.
