Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild (A2MQG)
The Ann Arbor Quilt Guild was very excited to participate in the QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge! We had enough interested participants that we decided to split into two groups: one where members would piece blocks based on a pattern, and another where members would piece blocks in an improvisational manner.
The improv team started with an idea: a quilt inspired by ideas! Arrows swarming and circulating represent the coordination of thought fragments.
Arrows were made improvisationally. A tutorial was written by team member Jenna and can be found HERE.
In accordance to the challenge guidelines, we forsook a traditional block format and rather used negative space and variable framing to give our arrows an alternate grid.
This quilt was long-arm quilted by member Lynn Harris of The Little Red Hen.
Our other group used their skills following the beautiful Think Positive pattern written by A2MQG member Debbie Grifka.
Team members made gorgeous plus blocks that were then assembled into a stunning quilt top.
