Our quilt is truly a guild team effort. The block was inspired by a quilt that was designed by one of our guild members. The original quilt is called Balance and was designed by Kathy Lindell of Eagle Nest Designs. The block was designed by our guild member, Bethany from Sew I’m Pressed.

Kathy took the time to teach our guild how to do paper piecing using freezer paper, and we had 20 guild members make our colored sections. We decided as a guild to use all solids for a more uniform and modern look. One of our guild members, Melissa, pieced all of the blocks and the gray and white sections. A wonderful long arm quilter, Dianne pieced the top and did the incredible quilting. Finally our quilt was bound by Honnah, and photographed and mailed by Roberta.

You can truly see the wonderful quilting on this photograph of our backing.

Many, many hours went into the creation of our quilt, pulling in resources from our entire guild and we are so excited to have it at QuiltCon!
