Week 23/2018: What’s on my design wall?

During the Dutch modern quilt guild gettogether that I went to on Sunday we worked on our contribution for the Quiltcon 2019 Charity Quilt Challenge. Everyone has to stick to a certain colour palette and a design theme. This year’s theme is small piecing with elements that are smaller than 1′. We are going to make 690 (yes, you read that correct, 690!) 3” finished blocks. Whoah.

On Sunday we finished close to 110 blocks and everyone took home some fabric to make some more. Members that didn’t attend on Sunday will be send fabric if they also want to contribute.


This is what our design wall looked like on Sunday afternoon.

This morning I cut into the fabrics I had taken home and added a couple of my own that I hope are a well enough match to the colour palette. I managed to complete 10 blocks before I ran out of fabric. On Sunday I completed a dozen or so as well, so if 34 other members also complete 20 blocks we’re good.


The blocks I made today.

    A very ambitious project. Looks good so far.

    It’s going to be spectacular, but I’m very glad I won’t have the job of quilting it, with all those seams and tiny pieces :-)

      That is definitely not going to be my job either! It will probably be done by someone with a longarm machine. It has to be twin size so that is pretty large to do on a domestic machine.

  3. Wow, just WOW! The piece looks very modern, cool and awesome so far!

    Ambitious, yes, but it looks great on the wall, and i think your additions will be wonderful with it.
