The Local Quilt

This is my Local Quilt binder which contains all of my house patterns and details of each block.  Around the 1st of the year Jaime David, "The Patchwork Architect" put out a call for a BOM group to make this fantastic quilt. 
A goup of us from the Kansas City MQG jumped at this chance to gather with friends and make this quilt.  We agreed to meet monthly despite our busy lives and work on this quilt.  We also worked on chatting, eating and drinking a bit of wine and beer!  All the elements needed for a great quilter's gathering.
Jaime formed a private group on Facebook for us to share our accomplishments, failures and frustrations.  We even had someone (a former KCMQG member) from out of state that shared our gathering through Facetime.

We are getting ready to finish up this project
and plan to reveal our finished, quilted and bound quilts at the January KCMQG meeting.  It has been so much fun!
This group has been such great fun.  We have found good friendship and enjoyed each other's company!  Bonus at the end will be a great finished quilt!  This quilt pattern is paper pieced and designed by Carolyn Friedlander.
