SBAMQG 2018 Charity Quilt blocks

SBAMQG 2018 Charity Quilt

We’d love for you to contribute!

For the 2018 Charity Quilt, we will design a quilt top using your orange peel blocks. You can use a template or improvise, but please follow these guidelines:

  • Use the color palette above (and only those five colors), including solids or modern prints that read as solids. For this quilt, please no batiks, white, or off white. The official challenge page has some more details on this color palette:  https://www.quiltcon.com/charity-quilt-challenge/
  • Blocks should be made with two fabrics and must be pieced, not appliqued. (photo above)
  • Blocks should be 3.5″, 6.5″, or 12.5″ unfinished. Please leave at least 1/4 inch around the orange peel, so we don’t lose your beautiful work in the seams!
  • To include them in the charity quilt, please bring them to the August or September guild meeting.
