QuiltCon Austin Children's Shelter quilt

Pittsburgh Modern Quilt Guild was one of the chapters chosen to make a quilt from the blocks entered in the QuiltCon Block Challenge. Friday, we received the seven blocks that we will turn into a twin-size quilt that will be donated to the Austin Children’s Shelter in Texas after being displayed at QuiltCon in February. This will be one of 46 from guilds across the country.

The outreach committee started working on the quilt on Monday at my house and made quick progress.

The seven blocks we received.

Kathy, busy at the iron.

Pam was in charge of the rotary cutter.

Stephanie checked details on the computer in between time at the machine.

TaMara took down the next block to be worked on.

It's still a work in progress. When we have more photos this weekend I'll post them here.
