For the 2017 Westside Quilters Guild Challenge Quilt, we are asked to use 10 solid fabrics to create a 36″ square (or smaller) quilt. It turns out I have almost no solid fabrics in my stash, so together with a friend, we bought a pack of Kona solids from Craftsy. We divided up the pack so we each have 10 for this challenge plus a few extras for our stash.

My parents were both born in Ohio and moved to Oregon before I was born. They obviously didn’t cross over the “Oregon Trail” officially, but I know there are state blocks and also an Oregon Trail Block. An idea is born!
