Our First Guild Challenge!

Right after this Sunday's SDMQG meeting, we will start our first ever guild challenge. Our goal is to learn something new and complete an entire charity quilt top by the end of the sew-in. Thanks to Robert Kaufman fabrics and Julie Herman, we have a few donated stacks of pretty blue Kona Cotton Solids waiting to be cut.

The goals for this challenge are to have any participants make a block for this quilt in 30 minutes, using some improv quilting techniques. I will give a short demonstration on a few methods of "improv" for anyone to practice on just one block. All the completed blocks from our members will then be sewn together to make an entire quilt top by the end of the meeting! 

All you need to do to join the fun is show up to the meeting, bring your sewing machine, thread, a rotary cutter and/or fabric scissors, and the willingness to try something new. 

This should be FUN! See you there!


  1. I'm new to the area. Where will you be meeting tomorrow?

    1. Quilt in a Day shop just east of Rancho Santa Fe Rd and Melrose. It's hidden in a light industrial park, so I suggest mapping it.
