I'm super excited to announce the quilt-a-long that I am running for the Austin Modern Quilt Guild (AMQG). AMQG Officers wanted a small project that everyone could participate in to bring us together as a group. I suggested a modern quilt-a-long... and they went for it! The finished product will be a modern sampler quilt. Most of the quilt blocks will be from online modern quilters, who are also members of chapters of the Modern Quilt Guild.
This quilt-a-long features one quilt block per month and runs 12 months long. Each month, we'll introduce a new block. Feel free to join along! Its only one block per month, so it should be easy to keep up.
The quilt-a-long blocks will end in August 2011. The top assembly, quilting, and binding can be completed by Holiday Season 2011.
Tonight I will be debuting the first block at our monthly meeting. It is the Friendship Star from Block Party.
