The Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild participated in the Kona No Prints Allowed Challenge.
• Kona solids only
• Must use at least 30 of the charms/at least ½ of the charm piece
• Up to (3) additional Kona solids can be added
• Minimum of 120” outside perimeter
• Due date – June meeting
• Must be quilted and bound
Here’s what I came up with! All pictures of the quilt are courtesy of Anna!
I used the Dusty Charm Pack as well as Kona Snow, Coal, and Ash.
I call it “Dusty Springfield”
The back got slightly askew when I was basting, which is a bummer…
I made the cross blocks by doing strip piecing and saved a couple of extras for the back.
I was inspired by this gate in April and Andy’s house from the TV show “Parks and Recreation”
Thanks for looking! This is a judged competition – I’ll let you know who the judges pick! In the meantime, you can view more of the guild’s challenge quilts in our flickr group!

This turned out so well, Jenna! It’s gotten 4 “favorites” since I added it to the Robert Kaufman Kona Challenge pool. Neat to hear (and see) what your inspiration was for the pattern–and nice execution, it looks just like the screen!
Thanks Anna! I forgot to credit you in this post – but I’ve updated it with a link to your blog. Same goes for the shots I added to my flickr stream. You rock!!
Your quilt is amazing! I love the color palette and design.
This is beautiful! How wide are the strips that you used for chain-piecing? I’m thinking 2″ but I’m not sure… I would LOVE to make this sometime! 🙂
Hello Liz! Yup! 2 inch strips! If you didn’t see this post already, it may help you make your own!
Love this quilt! I’m starting my own as a gift for my sister, and I’ll be chronicling it on my blog!
Awesome!!!!! I’ll be reading, and please let me know if you hit any speedbumps. Yay!!!
My aunt keeps asking me to choose a quilt pattern and I am not really a quilt person. But I really like this one. Can you tell me where I can get a pattern for this? So I could send it to her?
