QuiltCon 2015 Charity Quilt Challenge

QuiltCon 2015 had a Charity Quilt Challenge. Many of the Modern Quilt Guilds worked collaboratively to create quilts using a predetermined color palette and alternate grid work design. The quilts were sewn in their entirety by each guild (from design and piecing through quilting and binding) to produce complete twin-sized quilts. The quilts were displayed in  QuiltCon lecture halls. After QuiltCon they will be donated to a children’s shelter in the guild’s local community.  Here a just a few of the quilts.  What a great way to decorate and donate all at the same time!

TQS Zoom Quilt: "Modern Mojo 2" by Linda Thielfoldt

This quilt from the Minimalist Design category at QuiltCon 2015, is Modern Mojo 2 by Linda Thielfoldt.  Here's what Linda has to say about her quilt.

"What a great color! I bought the green fabric intending to make a wholecloth quilt. When I came across the spiky looking white print I knew I had to change my plans. A little graph paper, a little cutting and a lot of free hand quilting fun and MM2 was born."
