Challenge Rules


BQE invites the members of its sponsoring guilds to participate in this special challenge. What is friendship?  Aristotle said, A single soul, dwelling in two bodies. It can be a feeling of comfort and emotional safety between one person to another.  Friendship will have different definitions to different people based on their own unique experiences.  What does it mean to you?  That feeling can take form or be represented or symbolized in many ways--all personal--so put on your unique creative cap and we hope you'll make a quilt to enter.

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art...It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that gives value to survival. -- C.S. Lewis
