Last September I had the opportunity to help put together blocks for the second QuiltCon Charity Quilt by the Dutch Modern Quilt Guild of which I am a member. We were each asked to put 5 blocks together of 4 different letters and a ‘space’. The letters form the words BLACK and WHITE in various languages.
I was assigned the letters B, S, L, and U and a ‘space’ to fill with a random geometric pattern . I drafted a foundation paper piecing pattern for some of the blocks. I stitched the little piece of paper with the info what the assigned letter and coloring was to the finished blocks so it would be easy for the others who were piecing the quilt.
The color scheme was dictated by the QuiltCon organizers as well as the element of text. Our guild decided on the exact words and composition.
Some of the fabrics in these blocks were donated and we all added bits and pieces of our own stash.
Some blocks were a bit come complex than others.
And here is the finished quilt!
We are very proud to take part in this event, and I hope to participate again next year.
