October meeting and MQG Charity Quilt

At our October meeting we distributed the fabric for the MQG's Charity Quilt challenge. All of the participating quilts will be displayed at QuiltCon in February. When this challenge was first announced, I was so enthusiastic that I immediately ordered two yards of each color. In September, we decided that Sheri would design the quilt, and we would distribute the fabric along with block instructions at the October meeting. 

We decided that each participating member would receive three fat quarters of the solids, and would then add blenders of their choice. Any leftover fabrics would be returned to be used on the back of the quilt. 

Sheri decided to use our home state of Connecticut as an inspiration for the blocks, putting them together as different sizes to form a sort of pinwheel. 

Below are some sample blocks that she brought along to show everyone. 

We are happy to report that all of the blocks have been turned in, the top and back have been finished, and will be revealed at our November meeting on Saturday. Then its off to be quilted and bound. Watch this space for more photos.
