Have You Heard about...

...the QUILTCON block challenge?

I love a challenge! This one sounds like so much fun, and the best part? It's just a block. One block (or up to 3), but even a busy Mom can manage to make 1 block before August.  The thing that really drew me in though? The color palette...it's kind of right up my alley. So I pulled some fabrics that seem to work with their scheme, trying to keep each fabric pretty monochromatic (except for that lovely glass tile one). I guess I'm seriously lacking in the "tangerine" category though. Well, at least I know what to buy at my next quilt club meeting.

Look here to see a helpful post on choosing colors for this challenge.

Now to design a block, or two, or three....

Anyone else planning on giving this a try?


  1. I've seen the challenge, and I'll mention it at our next Guild Meeting, but I'm afraid I'm the queen of procrastination so I'll probably forget again until about July ;o)

  2. I'm thinking about doing the challenge. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  3. I have never done a block challenge..I always do a quilt plan from start to finish...maybe it is time?
