| Modern Quilt Guilds from all over the world were invited to participate in the 2015 Quiltcon Charity Quilt Challenge. |
To get started on this project we decided to use the Kona solids for our Quiltcon Charity Quilt. Group members each made one or two blocks for the quilt.
At our next meeting we laid out different background options and decided to use different rows of the solids used in our blocks. We tried several layouts with the blocks and ultimately settled on the configuration you see in our finished quilt.
The rows were put together by Cheryl, Alice, and Jenn. Alice then put the rows together to make the quilt top. Lucinda did the backing. Mary Lute - the long arm quilting. Cheryl did the binding and Jenn made the quilt sleeve and label.
This was truly a collaborative effort and all of us are pleased with the outcome.
We are really excited to have our quilt on display in Austin for Quiltcon 2015. Following Quiltcon, the quilt will come back to northwest Ohio where it will be donated to a local children's charity.
To see more photos of our quilt blocks visit NW Ohio MQG on Facebook!
Special thanks to Fresh Modern Fabric for donating all of the fabric except for the quilt blocks - which each member purchased to make their donation blocks. AND special thanks to The Door Mouse for the batting and thread!

There was no shortage of show n tell at April's meeting.
First up is Jennifer's quilt with great straight line stitching. She took a mystery quilt class and came out with this great kid's quilt.
Next, Lucinda has used Jennifer's pattern for the start of a couple of baby quilts that feature Ed Emberly's elephant print.
Katie -- our Illinois member was able to be with us in person this month... and she brought three items:
these baby burp cloths are for Katie's daughter Ashley, also a NWOhio MQG member.
Cheryl brought this great quilt featuring one focus print and lots of solid. Looks great!
For March's meeting we did a zipper pouch swap, and Mary Lee made another zipper pouch. She also brought a quilt where she followed the pattern... something she rarely does -- follow a pattern, I mean.
And finally, these quilt blocks are made of sticky foam board
It's amazing how quiet the room became as each person worked on their own quilt block. Great creative activity - thanks Alice!
Next month's meeting is Thursday, May 15 at the First United Methodist Church on Wooster, in Bowling Green. We gather any time after 6:00 pm and officially start the meeting at 6:30pm - 8:00pm. See you then!
