Description

This quilt was made in conjunction with Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild members as part of a challenge started in 2011.

Each participant made 1-2 blocks, whose names started with the designated letter of the alphabet, each month.

In December 2012, we were to bring the finished tops to the group to show. Our intention was to show the finished quilts as a group at the San Mateo County Fair in 2013.
