Kona Challenge

Last Thursday the Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild held it's first holiday party and Kona Challenge Reveal!

It was truly amazing to see what everyone made with just a little charm square pack of solids.  They are starting to add them to the flickr group, you should check out some of the amazing projects.

I used my new drunkards path template to challenge myself with curves and did quite a bit of free motion quilting (for me, anyway!).  We were allowed to use one extra color and I chose Kona Charcoal.

The curves really got fast and easy after I did a few.  I did not use pins.  I avoid pins any time I possibly can.  I probably should have done straight line quilting on the charcoal part.  I guess echo quilting around curves and straight lines is not my forte.

I kind of like the back better! Now I have no idea what to do with this little mini quilt.

Am I the only one that takes 200 pictures of my kids for the holiday cards and finally gets one decent one:

and 199 that are some bad variation of this:



  1. Love that mini quilt - great colors and design :)

  2. lol for real- b/c my holiday card outtakes are the same as yours. :)
    Your boys are so cute!

  3. i am WAY impressed with your quilt! and, yeah... i've got lots of those pics stashed somewhere on the hard drive. apparently i'm a digital hoarder b/c i can't seem to make myself erase even the awful ones.

  4. Love your quilt! Beautiful! I have one more kid to add into the Christmas photo mix, an infant, and after about 100 tries we gave up. I went with a layout where I could use single pictures of all the kids because I could not get a good picture. At least we didn't go to a professional!
