April Guild Activity

Our April activity will be a "virtual meeting" instead of an actual gathering. We'll each take the month to create a quilt block and at the end of the month we'll display them all online together.  Participants will be entered in a drawing to win the all blocks!

  • The block pattern is Converging Corners by Film in the Fridge by Ashley
  • Make one or more blocks, 12" finished size (12 1/2" square) 
  • Use the same color scheme in the tutorial : solid white Kona for the background, bright (saturated color) prints or solids for the rest. Use a large, fun print for the center square. 
  • Submit a photo of the completed block by April 27.  We want this to be fun and easy, not stressful, so we have several options for submitting your photo.
    • If you have a Flickr account, please post the photo to Flickr, add it to the Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild group pool, and tag it GLMQG-Apr13
    • If you have a Facebook account, you may post the picture to the Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild facebook page. 
    • You may email your photo to 
    • If you do not have access to a digital camera, contact me (Carolyn) and I will arrange to photograph your block.
  • View the completed blocks here
  • Bring your block to the May 18th meeting. We'll draw a lucky winner who will get to take home all our blocks. That winner must assemble the blocks into a finished quilt before being eligible to win again. Fair enough?
Happy quilting!


  1. This is going to be a lot of fun. I can't wait to start my block. I already saw that Jackie had started hers!

  2. My long distance quilt sisterhood is taking this block on as a Round Robin challenge...any hints or tips on block construction??
