More details about our Quiltcon Charity quilt:
We’re pulling together our quilt on a VERY tight deadline. Fabric will be given to members who have signed up on our online form at the meeting on November 20.
Each bag will contain a cut of 20” x 25” Michael Miller Teal, plus a chunk of Kona for the plus sign. Here is the fabric pull for the quilt, using the required palette that Daniela so expertly designed:
Kona Pickle, Michael Miller Teal, Kona Cerise, Kona Snow, Kona Shadow
Your mission is to float one or more plus signs in Teal, with the finished block measuring 18” square.
The pluses can be straight or wonky in any size. Here is my block (I made it in just under an hour):
Even though we’re doing blocks, the idea is to have the floating pluses in all different positions, fulfilling the alternate grid requirement. Here is Amy’s sketch of the full quilt idea:
Amy R. will assemble the top. Your bag, should you sign up, will also contain Amy’s address. Please mail your block to her by December 1.
Diane will long-arm quilt the quilt and Stella has volunteered to bind.
We can do this, team! Please chip in if you are able, no worries if you can’t. Sign up here to get fabric tomorrow night. If you’d like to make more than one block, put your name on more than one line. We need 20 blocks to make a twin size quilt!
Thank you to everyone for chipping in. There was a time when we thought we wouldn’t be able to pull it off, but it looks like we’ll be able to. Have I ever told you how I believe that quilters are some of the best people around?
