Woah

I don't know if you know this or not, but this thing is going viral. 


Our quilt top for the 2016 QuiltCon charity quilt challenge is complete and off to the quilter (new member, Nikki Maroon)!

This quilt was improv pieced (pieced without following a pattern) by many members of the PghMQG. An image of the iconic Roberto Clemente bridge was blown up to quilt size by member, Amanda Hancock, and then broken down into individual blocks. Each member who participated was given a copy of their portion of the image, a bag of small pieces of fabric (no bigger than an eighth of a yard, mostly small strips), and one main instruction: make it.

In the end, Amanda put all of the blocks back together, and, man, it turned out great. This beauty will be sent to hang at the QuiltCon exhibit in Pasadena Feb 18-21st along side the work of many other guilds who participated in this challenge. In the end this quilt will be donated to a charity (TBD), but we are interested in showing it off around town a bit first. If you think you can help with this, please email the guild! 

We would like to thank everybody who is giving this quilt their love! We are pretty proud of it!
