KMQG QuiltCon Charity Challenge Quilt 2016 Details

Our fabrics have been distributed and the block making can begin!  Let's recap what our plan is:


Using improv with intent and inspiration from Striped Light's textile inspired work, as seen in the photos, create an 11 in x 17 in rectangular quilt block. Please use only the solid fabrics provided, if you need more fabric, all can be found at :

Kona White
Kona Bone
Kona Ash
Kona Black
Kona Capri
Kona Corn
Kona Red

Feel free to use all the colors or limit the colors you use.  If you sign up to make a block and receive fabric, you must deliver the completed block to our November 21, 2015 meeting.  At the November meeting, we will construct the quilt top. The blocks can be as complex as you like or as simple but inspired by the shapes and colors in Striped Light's work.  There are many resources to help you begin, or we will also be working on these at retreat.  See more information on the QuiltCon West challenge here.  Sign ups are closed.

Please share photos on Instagram and tag with #kmqgcharitychallenge #quiltconcharityquilt

You can find more photos of Striped Light's work on their Facebook page or Instagram.  If you would like to see/purchase the prints they are available for sale at their shop located at 107 Bearden Place -- all one of a kind prints!

Most importantly, HAVE FUN!  Enjoy the process.  Take your time.  Melissa
