The other day I mentioned something called QUILTCON. Remember? You can click on the link to find out more but basically it's a conference put on by The Modern Quilt Guild. Speakers, vendors and so much more. It's scheduled for early next year and I really hope I can go.
One of the things I'm most excited about is the fun QuiltCon Block Challenge.
Using the colors of their logo you can make a block that reflects what modern quilting means to you. (If you're not sure what modern quilting is: read here. Or, just read it anyway because I LOVE IT! :o)
Where was I? Oh yeah, the colors of the QuiltCon logo. Yeah, they're my new faves! I can't help but invision every new pattern design I have in these colors.
Don't you just LOVE these colors!? QuiltCon has not specified which fabrics to use. In fact, they have left that up to interpretation. However, many of the fabric companies have put their own bundles together. "Tiny Dancer" and "Lady Marmalade" from Marmalade fabrics sent me these bundles a few weeks ago. I really want to make something but haven't been able to bring myself to cut into them yet.
Of course MMF has a variety of their own prints in these gorgeous colors that I'm playing with too. Look for a Crazy Old Ladies pattern exclusive coming soon!
Not sure these colors are the PERFECT combo for a project in your future?
Take a look at this:
The Portland Modern Quilt Guild made this amazing quilt that was hanging in the MMF booth at market. LOV-ER-LY! See, now you can understand why I'm seeing everything in these colors.
Guess what!? just because it's summer. And just because I'm feeling generous I'm going to give away a custom bundle of my own. A little of this and a little of that- 1 fat quarter in each of the colors for you to play with! (I haven't taken a picture yet because I just thought of this right when I was writing this post. Cool huh!?)
So, want to play?
Leave me a comment- One word. Any word. Make it a good word. (no bad words, if you know what I'm sayin') I'll pick a random comment on Friday.
Tomorrow is my big boy's birthday. 12! WHAT!? I'll be busy eating cake and ice cream. Talk to you soon.
