QuiltCon Block Challenge



When my friend Carolyn at Demanding Cat posted that her block was going to be featured on the MQG blog, I was only a little jealous, but mostly proud of her.  After church this evening, I checked my email (and left putting the kids to bed to my husband) and got my own email.  Now, I'm no longer green with envy.  Check it out tomorrow!  I can hardly wait.

Thank you so much for submitting a block or blocks to the QuiltCon Block Challenge! I'm truly overwhelmed by the beautiful blocks you made. 
I'm just sending you this e-mail to confirm that your block or blocks will be featured on the MQG blog tomorrow (Thursday, August 30). You can follow the blog during the next few weeks to see more fabulous blocks and be sure to check the blog starting September 24, for the announcement of the blocks that were selected to be included in the QuiltCon Raffle Quilt.
The blocks that aren't selected for the raffle quilt will be used to make bed quilts for the Austin Children's Shelter so, even if your block doesn't end up in the raffle quilt, it is definitely going to a good cause! We're currently looking for guilds interested in finishing one of the quilts for the children's shelter so, if you think your guild might be interested, please let me know.
Thank you, again, for participating in the QuiltCon Block Challenge!

Congrats on your feature today on MQG! I came here from there and am a new follower! I love your I-Spy quilt below, just gorgeous! I wish someone would create a spoonflower I-Spy cheater fabric, with a yard of patchwork squares in I-SPy fashion. I love Spoonflower, but if I have craft money to spend it's hard to justify the price of the fabric. Maybe if I have some free time someday I will make up a cheater of my own. :)
