A Charming Challenge

The lovely people at Robert Kaufman Fabrics furnished our little Columbus Modern Quilt Guild with Kona Charm Packs to play with! A challenge has been made for each of us to create a quilt centered around these 42 squares of Kona solids (the Bright Color Palette)... and we can add one additional solid and also a print, if we so choose.
The Theme: Summertime Fun!

I've been racking my brain and have finally decided how to chop up and sew together this rainbow of fabrics! I'm adding Coal Kona for sure but have not yet decided if a print will be added... maybe for the binding?
My inspiration came from Rita... but I won't say exactly which pattern, you love a surprise, right?

We'll be sharing our progress at the next meeting on April 21st... hopefully I have a completed quilt top to show! My fingers are crossed!
If you live in or around Central Ohio - and love to quilt, or even want to LEARN to quilt, come to the next meeting! We gather at Quilt Trends close to I-71 and 161.

I personally love being a part of this group! Its one thing to have 'online' quilting/sewing friends on Flickr, Etsy, etc but to be able to chat face to face with local gals and learn from each other in the process... I'm finding it priceless!
