The PRINCE Cherrywood Challenge 2018

What happens when you give artists the same fabric, same color, and same inspiration? The result is an amazing variety of ideas! All the pieces in this collection are created with Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabric. Artists took inspiration from Prince, the late musician from Minnesota (also home of Cherrywood). Be the first to see the debut of all 150 quilts in the two traveling exhibits of this challenge!

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Go to the link Genesia gave. They show all of the quilts. They are amazing. I think they have a poster with each quilt on it.

Is that photo of the quilt supposed to be Prince?

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

The above is a link to the winners.

The quilt photo posted above only came in 2nd place. I think it should have been a 1st place winner.

It's pretty but it doesn't look a lick like Prince's image.

I'm suckered in by all the colors.


I do have a questions, does this purpose a problem since this looks like it's for profit?

Not sure, or if it was sanctioned by the estate or family. It does say they will donate a portion of the proceeds, but, not sure if that applies to the just the entry fees, or the stuff they are selling or all of it:

To honor Prince's philanthropic history, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The Crossing Arts Alliance, and other charities.

There is now a poster of the quilts for sale:

I know there will be naysayers .... lol

But, I agree. I was surprised to see this on the news this morning. It made my day in a way. I've known 2 quilters in my life so far. And, I know it takes time and dedication. Up to 2-6 months of time depending on how intricate. They are so dedicated to it and they go into great detail. To know that there were close to 400 people across the country who took the time to build a quilt honoring Prince, made me happy for a moment. And that is worth it.

For the naysayers that posted in this thread....let's see you do better. The hours that were spent doing these particularly if they were hand sewn; they were truly a labor of love. Lest we forget we all don't see images, pictures, etc in the same way. Just beautiful.

Holy Moses! I was highly impressed at the thought there being just the one in the first post. These are simply astounding for real, I would love to see them in person.
