Hi Swatch & Stitch Readers, Kristy here from the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild.  I wanted to share with you some of the amazing quilts that our guild made as part of the Kona Charm Pack Challenge.

We went with the Classic Palette and could only add 1 - 2 additional solids, and while we had 6 months to complete the challenge, many of us were still sewing on the binding at the last minute; yet as you will soon see it was worth it in the end.

While I would love to show you each and every quilt up close and personal, a small sampling will have to do; yet I encourage you to hop on over to our STLMQG blog for even more loveliness.

Quilt by Jessica who won 1st place.


Quilt by Wanetha, who won 2nd place.     


Quilt by Juli Ann, who walked away with 3rd place.


Over 40 members participated in this, our 1st guild challenge, and as you can see in the below photo, even standing on a chair wasn’t enough to capture all the talent in the room.

If you want to see what some of the other guild’s around the country made, make sure you stop by the RK Challenge Flickr group and don’t forget to check out more of what we at the STLMQG are doing here.

Our thanks to Robert Kaufman for allowing us to showcase their wonderful Kona solids.
