QuiltCon Recap: Charity Quilt Edition

Thank you to all the Modern Quilt Guilds who entered the 2015 QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge. All of the guilds worked collaboratively to create quilts using a predetermined color palette and alternate grid work design. The quilts were sewn in their entirety by each guild (from design and piecing through quilting and binding) to produce complete twin-sized quilts. The quilts are currently displayed in our QuiltCon lecture halls (hence all the chairs), but after the event, they will be donated to a children’s shelter in the guild’s local community. Here are this year’s charity quilts!

  1. These are amazing works of art. It would be a pity to have them used and abused by kids. Maybe it would be better to auction them or sell them and donate the money to the charity!

  2. Those are amazing! That was a wonderful quilt show all by itself, and the quilting is awesome on so many of them. I love that they are going to charities to warm and cuddle someone who is feeling hopeless and/or helpless, as well as cold.

  3. It’s great to get to see them and they are all beautiful! I’m very proud that in my first year in our guild I am fortunate to have participated in this wonderful experience. I can’t wait to do it again next year!

  5. Beautiful quilts – it’s great to be able to see all of them all in one place (including our guild’s contribution)! Thanks for posting this for those of us who couldn’t be there in person!

  6. WOW!! I’m impressed with the variety achieved from just the required fabrics. All are beautiful. Great designs and there will be some really lucky folks getting these quilts.

  7. I love seeing all of these again, but I’m disappointed that our guild’s quilt isn’t anywhere in any of the photos. 😦 You might have seen it, it was stuck behind one of the light tripods. Double 😦 Heh.

  8. great to see these again. Asked where the charity quilts were and was directed to the Lecture Rooms. Did not hear to after the show that there were more in the workshop rooms. It would have been nice to see have names of who made them beside each quilt.
