It's Monday and I am so excited!
I received an email late last night from Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson!, to let me know that one of my QuiltCon Blocks was going to be featured today, along with others, on The Modern Quilt Guild Blog! I was so excited! I was even more excited when I woke up this morning and saw the post. They are posting the blocks in groups that look similar. There are two groups today called Pods and Pixels. My block is Block A in the Pixel group! Wow! There are some beautiful blocks in the these two groups! Go Check out the link:
Here is my block being featured today, which is one of three I sent in!
They will be featuring all the blocks over the next few weeks to showcase all the beautiful blocks they received. I believe there were close to 345 blocks. Twenty blocks will be selected and announced on September 24, to be used in the QuiltCon Quilt that will hang at QuiltCon and be raffled. The other blocks will be put together by Modern Guilds all over the country before QuiltCon and will be donated to the Austin Children’s Shelter, in Austin, TX, where the convention will be held! What a great way for the Modern Quilt Guild to give back to the community! I am so humbled and proud to be part of this wonderful guild and charity! I can't wait to see all the quilts put together! They will be amazing, just from seeing these few blocks today!
Have a great Monday!
