May 2020 Scrap Bags have a special fabric swatch.

Pile of scraps have been bagged and are ready for you. Anyone who purchases a May 2020 scrap bag will receive inside the bag a "challenge swatch". This over-dyed print MUST be used (visibly, noticeably) in your challenge quilt. It's only a small swatch, and you don't have to use it all.

2. Quilt size limitations. No smaller than 24" on any side, no larger than 60" on any side.

3. Quilts must be made entirely from Ricky Tims Scrap Bag fabric with the exception. Solid commercial black, pure white, or a black and white stripe may be used.

4. Quilts must visibly contain fabric from the challenge swatch, whether or not it is featured, or disguised.
