Thursday night was the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild meeting. I was able to attend the first part, which was the unveiling of our challenge quilts. Three months ago, we were each given charm packs of Kona Solids to turn into quilts. And those three months flew by! Here are all the fabulous quilts brought in by the guild members:
There were three categories. Best big (Patti’s pinwheels took that title) best small (which went to Tracy), and best rule breaker – which I won! The rules were that you had to use the entire charm pack, add 2 solid colors, and bring in a finished quilt. I broke the rules right off by swapping colors with Vic… and then broke them further by bringing in a top that wasn’t complete. I’m sure the voting was close… everyone’s quilts are AWESOME!
I still can’t believe how lucky we are to have a Modern Quilt Guild here in Vegas! The guild is still pretty new, and growing, but the talent in the room on the last Thursday of every month is palpable – and contagious!
I can’t wait for “moore!” : )

What yummy solid quilts! My favorite is Cola’s quilt, too.
What great challenge quilts! I’m in the MQG in LA and OC, I always love the show and tell. Looks like LV chapter is just as inspiring!
Wow thank you for posting the photos! They are all amazing! Great job!! 🙂
These are beautiful. I keep thinking I should make a quilt but I last time I got so bored of it. Maybe I’ll have more interest this time.
