What kind of quilter am I? Scrappy, for sure. Loving quilt history, and classic blocks, and symmetry.
I am so glad that the MQG opened up to individual members. And at $25 / year, it’s a pretty cheap addition to my quilting addiction. I was eager to join in with the MQG challenge after seeing the fantastic creations from last year’s project using Madrona Road.
Riley Blake provided the fabric, some of their basics, and we can add any solids or Riley Blake fabric we liked. Riley Blake to me has always meant sweet, somewhat sentimental fabrics, but of course they have some fantastic geometrics and blenders which suit modern quilting very well.
I have tried to make this creation reflect me and my development as a quilter.
Wonky Churn Dash–A classic block made modern, using this tutorial from Urban Stitches.
Flying Geese–I learned to make flying geese by piecing hundreds during the Bonnie Hunter Easy Street mystery. I think this chevron arrangement suits modern quilting well.
Come back to see what else I will be adding!
