Summer Block Challenge Update -Ty Pennington

We are turning in completed Ty Pennington blocks at the September meeting this week. After brainstorming about some different local charities and non profit organizations we have made a decision about where our quilt will be donated. We have decided to use our many beautiful blocks to make two quilts instead of one as originally planned. These two quilts will be donated to two families living in North Austin whose homes burned down on August 22 of this year.

Thanks to the organizations that helped our guild to make this donation possible: Westminster Fabrics and Ty Pennington Fabrics for donating 12 yards of fabric from the stunning Impressions collection, Walker Hall Design for donating additional Pennington fabric, and The Quilt Store in Austin for making a donation as well.
Thank you to all of you in the guild that have helped by making one or more blocks to use in these quilts, I am very excited to start the next step of our process; piecing the tops and backs of these two special quilts.

Check out the other block designs and add your own to our Flickr page.
