DMQG Raffle Blocks

The Dallas Modern Quilt Guild hosted a cool challenge this past month. They decided to have a raffle of sets of quilt blocks made my the members with a certain color scheme and improv piecing style. Each block you made counted as an entry for a set of blocks. So, the more you made, the more entries you got. I decided to make three for the challenge.

DMQG Raffle Block 1

DMQG Raffle Block 2

DMQG Raffle Block 3


I really liked the first two but the third one was sort of a fail. I had this cool idea and then it didn't turn out like I wanted it to and it was too small.. Anyways, I added the orange border and it made it better but it still wasn't as cool as my other two blocks.

I didn't end up winning any of the blocks but that's fine, I'm still excited to see what the quilts people make up with them will look like. There were 6 block sets given away I think so there should be some good variety. I'm looking forward to some more cool things like this now that I finally took the leap to join.

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts!
