Our job is to turn these 10 quilt blocks into a twin size quilt which will be donated to the Austin Children's Shelter. We can do this by making additional quilt blocks, adding negative space, or a combination of the two. The quilt must be machine quilted, bound, washed, and shipped to Austin before QuiltCon--the due date is February 1, 2013.
How can you help?
- Be a part of the group that will be piecing the top and backing.
- Donate your fabric scraps! We need to provide all the materials to complete the quilt. If you have solid scraps in the colors of the QuiltCon logo (plus gray and white) or larger pieces for the backing, we would love to put them to good use.
- Share your ideas for piecing the top by leaving a comment on this post, in our facebook group, or in our flickr group. Nine of the blocks measure 12.5" square and one block is 12.5" x 5.75". The completed quilt will need to be no smaller than 68" x 88" and no larger than 72" x 92".
In playing with some possible layouts I realized how bad I am at this!
