Our guild participated in the QuiltCon Charity Quilt, and it truly was a group effort! The design itself was a collaborative effort, the quilt top was created by a group of us, one person quilted it, a different person made the back, another person made the label and sleeve, and yet another person did the binding! It truly is amazing to see all these people come together to make such a cool project.
Karen (aka CapitolaQuilter) and I decided to do a photo shoot with the finished quilt today. It’s a gorgeous day here in Santa Cruz, and it was fun finding different locations to take the pictures. Unfortunately, it was incredibly windy, so we didn’t get as many fabulous shots as we would have liked. However, we did get a lot of fun shots of the charity quilt as well as our madrona road challenge quilts.
There are more pictures available on flickr, but here are a few of my favorites.

My Madrona Road challenge quilt, “Streams of Consciousness” on campus at UC Santa Cruz. The campus is settled in a redwood forest.
Did I mention it was windy? Karen was such a trooper!! This is the view from the UC Santa Cruz campus overlooking the town. You can also see the ocean and Monterey from this overlook.
We are so fortunate to live in such a gorgeous area! It was really great to hit some of the well known hot spots in town. 🙂
