And here she is!  All quilted up and on her way to Austin.  It was the usual beautiful day in paradise here in Santa Cruz so Karen and Anne went around to some spectacular spots along with our quilt for Quiltcon, and their Madrona Road Challenge quilts and took some pretty sweet shots.

Here are a few more shots of our Quiltcon Quilt…front and back with the Boardwalk in the background…

Made with the colors of the Quiltcon logo, the blocks come from members of other Modern Quilt Guilds and we put them together using Kona Ash as a background, and Karen did the amazing quilting, Miriam did the binding, and Susan did the label and sleeve.  This was truly a collaborative effort!  The back was designed by Tina who took solids in the Quiltcon logo colors and pieced a” Little Bits” backing on Kona Snow.  And, many others put their efforts in as well.   There’s a lot of love in that quilt which is good because it’s going to be donated to the Austin Children’s Shelter along with all the others made by other Modern Quilt Guild chapters.
