On the floor in the center of the room were packets of 30 background fabric squares. In four piles spread around the room were strips of fabric in different widths. To create a quilt "kit", we picked up a background packet and then chose 120 of the strips–30 from each size/pile. It looked something like this:
It was a fun way for everyone to build their own kit.
I bordered about half my blocks during the morning. After a lunch break, we gathered our chairs for the guild meeting. I came home after the meeting and finished making the blocks. I had 30 blocks bordered, sliced and re-assembled by the end of the day.
Here's some blocks on my design wall, showing step 1 and 2.
The quilt pattern we used (with the designers permission) is Scrappy Love by Cintia Gonzalez (of My Poppet) from Fresh Quilts magazine.
I am looking forward to squaring up and putting together my blocks and seeing ALL the quilts that came from those 4 piles of strips on Saturday.
