Charity Quilt by Austin Modern Quilt Guild

The Austin Modern Quilt Guild is participating in the QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge.  Participating guilds use a predetermined color palette and collaboratively make a quilt.  The quilts will be on display at QuiltCon Feb 19-21, and then donated to a charity for children.  

This project was perfect for me and I was so glad that our guild decided to participate. It was a fun and easy project!  This one came as a small kit with the fabric and instructions in little ziploc baggies that our guild members cut and assembled.  I picked up 2 sets to make a few blocks for our charity quilt organized by Amanda Hohnstreiter.   Meanwhile, it was fun to learn something new!!  I mailed the blocks and some of our guild members magically transformed the collection into this WONDERFUL quilt!!
I love it!!  And, I look forward to seeing all the charity quilts hanging together at QuiltCon.
