QuiltCon Block Challenge

Hello out there! Are you going to QuiltCon? Have you made a block for the challenge? I'm putting mine in the mail today.

I'm not sure if I prefer this way:


Or flipped:


What do you think? I suppose it would all depend on the adjacent squares.

This was a fun block that got me back in improvisational mode. I look forward to playing more with this design someday.

As for QuiltCon, I hope very much to go. I have family in Austin, so the location is perfect for me. The program looks amazing. The workshops are all so tempting, but the lectures alone would be worth the trip!

Is it already time again for the Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet at Lily's Quilts?

That means it's been a month since my last post. My poor neglected blog!

Till next time...

  2. I really, really, really want to go to Quilt Con and have friends that live there that I'd love to see, but it's not in the cards right now. Maybe if I win the lottery. Ha!

    Your block looks great. I like it both ways, but agree that it depends on what it's next too.

  3. I do not consider myself a modern quilter, but I do like this block. I zipped over to the challenge and look forward to seeing the completed quilt.

    Good luck with the challenge. How cool it would be to see your block in the quilt.

    1. Too bad... if only you could combine it with some sightseeing and turn it into a longer vacation. Thanks for the block love!

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Carrie! It's very exciting to see my block on the MQG blog. Whether or not it's chosen for the raffle quilt (to be revealed next month), I'm thrilled to be in such great company. Have you seen the Flickr stream of QuiltCon blocks? All so inspiring! I don't envy Elizabeth's job - I could never settle on just 20 blocks!
