This quilt was inspired by our guild’s work with Wonky Half Log Cabin blocks for an unspecified charity quilt. When we saw the Quilt Con Charity Quilt call for entries, we decided to move our efforts in that direction and to play with scale in a number of ways. The individual blocks are of different sizes and, when combined, create a large half log cabin block as the entire quilt.
Blocks were submitted by individual members and the full design was sketched out by Carson Converse using the blocks received. Diane Wespiser and Carson then assembled the top. The quilting was done by Donna Adams and the piece was bound bee style at a guild gathering. Our resident photography guru, Caro Sheridan, went to work as the deadline for entries closed in.
As a guild, our color sensibilities were definitely challenged as we were determined to use all colors represented in the palette.
Our finished quilt will be donated to a refugee family being hosted by the cooperative community where we hold our meetings monthly.
