1- Our guild is so awesome. Every step of the way, members gave their time and talent to volunteer and work on this quilt. Thank you to everyone for making yet another beautiful Quiltcon Community Outreach Quilt!

2- For a photo session and warm welcome, I highly recommend visiting the Colwell Thundering Herd Ranch (and getting a homemade pie). The place is beautiful, the lady of the house is a quilter and you’ll even get help to hold the quilt!

  1. The committee met in June  for the first time. There were many ideas on this year’s “Angles” theme. In the end, we chose to work on something that grows in California, to change from our recent Quiltcon submissions.
  2. We spent the next few weeks making test blocks, estimating fabric yardage, getting kits ready for the guild members. 
  3. In August, the guild members worked their magic and made beautiful citrus blocks. We met online and worked together. The variety of blocks was just amazing.
  4. Then it was time to put these blocks together, the committee met in Judi’s sunny garden and the quilt layout came to life in record time.
  5. Darla was brave enough to volunteer to piece the off-grid top. She had the top assembled in a few days. 
  6. Last but not least, Kathleen found the perfect quilting design for the “Angles” theme on her Gammill longarm and even added the binding to finish up the quilt perfectly.
