QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge - getting started

To say we were excited about entering the Quiltcon Charity Quilt challenge is an understatement! The thought of having our quilt displayed alongside others from Modern quilt guilds at the Quiltcon was too good an opportunity to pass up.
The brief is challenging but with enough scope for each guild to have their very own unique interpretation. Looking through the #quiltconcharityquilt feed on instagram shows the huge variety of interpretations.
The colour palette was set, the fabrics purchased and donated, we simply had to get together to sew the blocks, and sew we did! Two dates were set for the guild members to meet and sew in our guild HQ - mybearpawcraft we made 3 different sizes of blocks, 4.5, 8.5 and 12.5 improv squares, showing off the fabulous colour palette chosen for the challenge.

The first nights crew, sewing up a storm.

A fabulous selection of blocks from the first night, this done in only 2 hours of sewing! The grey fabric background is going to be the actual background of the quilt

A second nights sewing produced even more blocks, but still not enough to fulfil the needs of our quilt.
