Our QuiltCon Charity Quilt inspiration is a Birch Tree.
The theme of the challenge is “small piecing” Here you see the color pallet on the show board. Karen and Mary Anne explain how the kit should be put together. The kits contain 10 WOF (width of fabric) of either white or cream and then a 5″ x 10″ piece of each of the fabric palette except for blue which is the background. Cut up your fabric in 1 1/2″ strips and sew them together using the inspiration photo as your model. Here one of the slides show a design board with an example. Make your block 6 to 10 inches wide and as long as you can with the fabric provided. Do not square up your block, we will be cutting these blocks up to make the trunks and limbs of the Birch Tree. Please bring them back no later than the August meeting.
