QuiltCon Challenge and more

Hello All! 

Lori here, dipping my toes into the blogging pool. Today I want to let you know about the two latest blocks from our group for the QuiltCon Challenge to be posted on The Modern Quilt Guild website.

Yesterday's post featured triangles and one of Stephanie Akorli's blocks was included. Today, the theme was rainbow blocks and Jodi's prayer flags block was among those shown. Nice job, ladies!

If you haven't seen the blocks yet, go to and check them out. So many unique and creative ideas! You can also sign up to get the national blog entries mailed to you as they are posted, just by subscribing to their newsletter.

While you're over there, be sure to take a look at the 100 Days of Modern Quilting page. A while back The Modern Quilt Guild ran fourteen weeks of entries on topics ranging from improvisational piecing, composition and inspiration to shapes, color, prints and solids. Each week featured individual quilts that were good examples of the topic and -- my favorite part -- a round up of links to a wide variety of tutorials for that topic. Some of those links include tutorials for machine-piecing hexagons, binding curvy quilts, making a design wall, creating a quilt block in Illustrator and more. Talk about inspiration! 

Take a look, you'll find something to get your creative juices flowing. Then come back here and post your quilting results on our Flickr page. And feel free to tell us your favorite quilting/sewing tutorial links in the comments, below. We'd love to hear from you!
