Quiltcon Charity Quilt - We did it!

Final update? Who said that? What good is a final update without some pictures of the finished quilt?

The quilting and binding:

The quilt will be on its way to Austin and QuiltCon tomorrow, and I have to thank everyone who had anything to do with this process. Thanks to all the guild members who made blocks and donated fabric, to Peggy for organizing and motivating, to Pat, Jessica and Cortney for help with design and piecing, to Diane for the amazing quilting, to Stephanie for her super fast binding skills, to Margaret for transporting and to Beth for letting us use RPS as a workspace and drop off zone. The generosity of this group is inspiring.

Our guild rocks so hard.


  1. It looks great, thanks to everyone who worked on it!

  2. Great teamwork, ladies! And one more thanks is in order - to Melanie whose excellent leadership held it all together. No mean feat, coordinating the work of 20-25 volunteers to get this quilt finished and hand delivered to Houston in such a short time! Kudos to all.

  3. Yeah, thanks for posting all the finished pictures that show the whole quilt and how wonderful it turned out. Everyone should be patting themselves on the back right now for creating such a beautiful, modern and wonderful quilt. Some lucky kid in Austin will end up with our treasure! Congrats to all on a job well done.

  4. This is gorgeous!! I saw it at RPS before it left, I just love it!!


We love it when you comment!
