Summer Block Challenge

Ty Pennington Challenge! Yes, you read it correctly! Our celebrity challenge will be with Ty Pennington's current (and very mod) fabric line. Westminster Lifestyle Fabrics has generously donated some of Ty's cool new fabrics for our guild block challenge. We are asking members to make one square each, made exclusively of fabric from Ty Pennington's recent collection. The only restrictions on the block are that it end up being 12.5" x 12.5" and it be a 9-patch design. Feel free to make your own unique version of a 9-patch. The quilt will be assembled and quilted and donated to a family in need.

If you are interested in participating, please email Jessica at events@austinmodernquiltguild.com. Once we have the fabric in hand, we'll arrange for a happy hour pick up! Then everyone will have until September to complete their challenge blocks.

  1. I am so excited about this! The fabric looks great!!!

    Just did a search for 9 patch blocks this morning.

    Here are a bunch of "classic" blocks:

    And some of our AMQG QAL blocks are 9 patches:

    I don't know what I'm going to do... decisions, decisions! I might even have to make two blocks. :)
