Featured Quilt - First Place Negative Space at Quiltcon 2022

Red Blue by Carson Converse won First Place in the Negative Space category at Quiltcon 2022. Carson says,
"To tame my overflowing scrap bin, I started creating 12-inch improvisational squares from my extra fabric. The process is an exercise in letting go, I work quickly and don't edit fabric by color or print. For this quilt, most of the blocks use a striped shirting, creating a large field from which the other fabrics emerge." See how well she tamed her scraps in this improved pieced and longarm quilted two-color wonder!
Update on Quilt Blocks for Ukraine - Claudia Pfeil
Claudia Pfeil is asking quilters to send her 8 1/2” blocks in blue and yellow, the colors of the Ukrainian flag, and she will make them into quilts for refugees/children who are fleeing Ukraine.

Update: If you are sending blocks, state the value as $0 and mark them as "humanitarian aid" on the Custom Form. This will keep Claudia from having to go personally to the post office and sign for them and also not have to pay customs fees.

She has received hundreds of blocks, plus fleece backing and monetary contributions. I’m sure they will be a comfort to many refugees.
