No Prints Allowed!

As many of you know I am a proud member of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild and the fine people at Robert Kaufman gifted our guild 100 charm packs of Kaufman solids.

The guild has issued us a challenge: No Prints Allowed!

The rules are simple.
  • Each of the charm squares in your pack must be present in the quilt somewhere- even if it's only a tiny square on the back!
  • Add as much fabric as you want to make the quilt, as long as it is solid.
  • Cut up the charm squares any way that you wish.
  • Complete and bring to the March meeting.
I have my quilt all planned out. I'll give you a sneak peak a little closer to time.

Until next time,


  1. Wow! I am not sure if I could so a challenge like that. Looking forward to seeing what you came up with.

  2. Oh now that would be great fun! I can't wait to see what you came up with. Trying to imagine all the colors, hmmmm.

  3. Great challenge! Can't wait to see what you do.

  4. Charlie I can't wait to see what you do!!! You are so inventive and if you had cleared the snow at Heathrow and bought me that plane ticket I could have helped you. Okay maybe not seeing as I'm such a beginner and don't know what I'm doing yet - but I will soon.
    Lots of Love

  5. We are doing a charm pack quilt contest in the Houston Modern Quilt Guild too. Sounds like fun!

  6. I live North of KC. I might be tempted to join a modern Quilt guild. Normally I would never join a guild and shy away from anyone who might come at me like quilt police...but I would really enjoy getting inspired by others. Where is/when is the KC Modern guild meet?

  7. It sounds like fun...Can't wait to see what you do with it all!
