Quilters are being encouraged to go wild this fall for Whatcom READS! which encourages county residents to read the same book as part of a countywide book club experience.
The book for 2014 will be "Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail" by Cheryl Strayed. It was published in 2012.
Fourth Corner Quilts is sponsoring the challenge in which quilters of all ages are encouraged to read Strayed's book and create a quilt that reflects the issues, themes and locations presented in its pages.
Participants should submit quilts to Fourth Corner Quilts, 1844 State St., during regular store hours. The deadline is Jan. 16.
Quilts will be displayed at participating Whatcom READS! partner organizations during February.
Additional information, special challenge fabric, and free entry packets are at Fourth Corner Quilts. Or call Julie Menkee at 360-714-0070.
