My modern guild is making a charity quilt for QuiltCon 2019, and the requirements include a predetermined palate and blocks with pieces no larger than 1″ in at least one dimension. The theme is “small piecing”. Here is the palate:
At the last meeting, our guild had chunks of fabric about 8″ x 10″ cut for us to take home and make little blocks. The blocks are going to be used to construct something else, so the only requirement is that they finish either 2″ or 3″ square. I took these 3 colors:
The quilt has to be twin size, so it’s going to take a LOT of these babies! It will be fun to see what other guilds do when QuiltCon comes around in February.
Thanks to everyone who offered an opinion about my choice of accent color for the shirting quilt. There are two different blocks in the quilt that use the tiny accent squares, and I’ve decided to use orange for this one and rust for the other. Here are a couple of the blocks with orange. Those tiny orange squares finish 3/4″. Eek!
I’ll keep you posted.
