QuiltCon Charity Quilt Spotlight, by the Indy MQG

by Jennifer BromelIMG_6959The Indy MQG happily decided to make a quilt for this years 2017 QuiltCon charity quilt. Going with the given theme of ‘Scale’ and using the given color palette, it was decided to create a large scale play on the traditional ‘Courthouse Steps’ log cabin block using small strips of ‘made’ fabric blocks set against a solid grey, for high contrast. The guild members made blocks on their own and together in several sew-alongs. Then several members took on the tasks of backing, quilting, binding and prepping for shipping. The quilt turned out beautifully and we are happy to be showing it off at QuiltCon and giving to child at Riley Children’s Hospital. IMG_6960
