2022 Opportunity Quilt:  Shelter in Place

Jane Haworth is coordinating the guild’s 2022 Opportunity Quilt - and needs help from members in making blocks. Here’s the plan:

While we are "sheltering in place" and spending more time at home I thought this was the perfect time for the guild to approach this opportunity quilt as a community project

I hope members will join me in making house blocks that we will join together into a large quilt.

We will be using Pat Sloan's Village pattern, that I downloaded for free at the fatquartershop.com website.

The instructions use charm squares  but you  don't have to. The block’s finished size is
5 ½" x 7".   We will need 150+ blocks The house can have a chimney or no chimney as described in the instructions.

When making blocks using our own fabrics to keep the quilt harmonious, it's important to pay attention to my color guide

The guidelines for color

The background or sky needs to be a light blue, pale gray, or light neutral fabric.

The houses, door and roof need to be similar to the picture I have attached. Brights in blues, greens, purple, red, yellow. It does not need to be Kaffe fabrics but think of his bright, jewel colored palette.
