| 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.

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!
