QuiltCon Charity Quilt 2017 – Playing with Scale

 

The Challenge rules are out and posted. This year’s challenge is playing with scale – making blocks really BIG or very tiny or combining different sizes of the same blocks to create an overall theme and pattern. At least three colors need to be used from the color palette below. Full details will be on a future post. We are looking for someone to coordinate – Please email ocmodernquiltguild@gmail.com if you’re interested!
