QuiltCon Charity Quilt Spotlight: “Made to Scale” by the Portland MQG

by AnnMarie Cowley

Final_QuiltSince the challenge featured scale, we used the 10-point divider tool that is used to measure space and proportion and figured it would work just fine if we mirrored it.

Twenty members signed up to help and we passed out packets with a variety of colors asking that each member make a predetermined size diamond. Once they were returned, both a gold and a blue print stood out. We focused on choosing a diamond from each member with both of the blues, the gold and the grey.

Another surprise was finding that a dark blue worked on the border much better than our original thought of grey.

At the January meeting, our guild unanimously chose the title, Made to Scale. A charity has not been chosen, but with the vast need in the Portland area, it shouldn’t be difficult to find a home for our quilt.Work_day_on_floor
