Quilt Con challenge info for our charity quilt this coming year can be found HERE
You will find the link to the tutorial for the sample blocks and the color palette chosen by the Nat'l guild on that page.
The Quilts for Kids design challenge final tonight. Many of the quilt designs were made up into quilts to give to Lincoln Quilts for Kids which provides quilts to local hospitals for sick children.
Some of the designs submitted for  quilts:

Susan had two

Alice had two

Kaye made the large size so we made it into a smaller kids size



Kelly had two ideas from her son. One was the shield
and one was a smiley face but with the cat fabric I had it came out as a cat!
Last but not least MaryAnn with the winning design! Her design was written up and will be made into kits for the Lincoln Quilts for Kids group.
Some of the designs were made up into actual quilts by Kris Jarchow in her own fabric and interpretation as test quilts.  All of the designs submitted were looked over for ease of cutting and use of fabric.  The final determination was not only about ease but also about modern design. Mary Ann's design has so many possibilities. Thanks for all who participated!!!
Kim showed off some of the BOM blocks. All blocks and tutorials are on our pinterest page  HERE
Some of the Show and Tell:
