Hi Swatch and Stitch Readers! My name is Natalie and I am the founder of the Northern Virginia Modern Quilt Guild (NOVA MQG). I am guest posting today to share some of our projects from our Kona solid charm pack challenge. But first, I'd like to give a huge thanks to the people at Robert Kaufman fabrics and the Modern Quilt Guild who made this challenge possible! NOVA Modern decided to use our challenge fabric to create and donate Preemie quilts to our local NICU. The members were allowed to create any pattern they wanted with the charm pack provided and fabrics from their stash. Because we made preemie quilts, they also had to be between 29"x29" and 45"x45" (or any size in between) and constructed from all natural materials. This was our first challenge as a guild so we were all very excited! My favorite aspect of this challenge was seeing all the variety and creativity even with all of us essentially using the same fabrics. We had a great Show and Tell event April 30th at one of our member's house. Everyone had a blast showing their creations and seeing the other quilts that were turned in ahead of time. Most of the quilts were created using Kona solid charm packs (in the bright colorway) which were generously donated by RK to all the modern quilt guilds. Here are some photos of the ladies holding their quilts...
