Charity Quilt Sew Day

Prior to our October meeting, some of our members met during our “open sew” time to work on the charity quilt we are creating for QuiltCon 2019. For those of you not familiar with the concept, the Modern Quilt Guild issues a charity quilt challenge for every QuiltCon. The National MQG assigns the color palette and theme, then each participating member or guild needs to come up with the design, piece it, and quilt it. This year’s theme was tiny piecing, and the palette (shown below) was decidedly pastel.

This year, Tina Craig led our team in not only the design of our quilt, but also in the production on Saturday. It’s always a fun morning when people come together for a good cause… especially when it involves sewing… am I right?!
