MQG - Quiltcon charity top

The Modern Quilt Guild is hosting its first ever convention this February, affectionately named Quiltcon.
I'm signed up to go and to take a lot of classes from some of my very favorite designers. It's going to be pretty awesome.
As one of the many events that are happening as part of this convention many people sent in blocks in the "quilt con" colors to try and make it into a charity quilt that is going to be raffled off.

The remainders of the many blocks that were entered are being made into enough quilts to actually cover all of the beds in the Austin children's shelter. Myself and other Los Angeles modern quilt guild members have been placed in charge of our two quilts. So one day I had two friends (Latifah and Pam) over for soup and salad and quilting and in that day we created this top. It only took about 5 hours.
It is currently being long arm quilted by another friend named Tanya (I'll include pics of her work in progress) and will be bound and labeled by other members. Then it will be placed on display at the convention before being sent to the shelter for the children.
