QuiltCon Block Challenge

on Mar 16, 2012 in Quilting | 268 comments

QuiltCon is the inaugural conference and quilt show of the Modern Quilt Guild.

QuiltCon is sponsoring a Quilt Block Challenge curated by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson! 

The challenge guidelines require using colors consistent with the QuiltCon logo to create a quilt block that reflects what modern quilting means to you.

Elizabeth Hartman selected a stack of Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton colors consistent with the logo and wrote a great blog post on choosing colors and fabrics for making your block. We’ve created a Pink Chalk Fabrics QuiltCon stack based on her color selections.

And, of course, since the color matching was in full swing, Diana created 4 new color stacks inspired by the QuiltCon palette!

Entries to the Quilt Block Challenge are being accepted now through August 15.

An impressive lineup of workshop teachers is beginning to form including Denyse Schmidt (she’ll also be the keynote speaker), Malka Dubrawsky, Elizabeth Hartman, Anna Maria Horner, and Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr.

Entries for the Quilt Show will be accepted July 1 through October 31. Registration for the conference begins on August 30th.


I haven’t done a giveaway FOREVER. (I also haven’t actually selected winners for our last two giveaways so please bear with me as I get caught up, I see light at the end of the tunnel!)

Up for grabs are 4 QuiltCon Solids Stacks. Leave a comment stating what modern quilting means to you. I’ll draw winners on Monday. Winner’s Announced

Happy Weekend! xo Kathy
