I'm plugging along on my Madrona Road quilt for the Modern Quilt Guild's fabric challenge.
I made 8 random blocks and then I'm going to asymmetrically place them into the quilt top with solids and some of the gray-toned fabrics in the collection. I want it to have a "pieced-back" look. I'm not overly happy with the blue block. I think I'm going to add a solid around the pinwheel to make it pop more.
Our guild got mostly blue and yellow fabrics but I have very little pink in my house and I really loved the pink prints. I think I did the pink justice but I need a little more of that fabulous magenta. I might use that as the binding. In any case, I'll have lots of leftover fabric for my stash.
Speaking of leftovers....I'm using scraps from this quilt to make a covered notebook. My local guild is having our holiday party on Saturday and we're doing a swap. Very excited about this swap, I've been meaning to make one of these!
Up next (although I should work on my UFO's) is another pattern testing quilt for my mom. She picked out the colors, you'll be able to see that right away! Not what I would have picked but I think they are beautiful colors.
Trying to be better about my quilty UFO's, so here they are:
Star Wars quilt (binding only)
Echo Hexagon Quilt
BOM from Sew Mama Sew
Malka Quilt (basted already)
Top Secret Quilt (have top and back done)
Bee Quilt (one a charity quilt, one a girl quilt)
Possible: I Spy and Polaroid Quilts (no real actual plans)
Reusable Baby Wipes
Star Wars curtains and pillowcases
Bean Bag chair
Eek! Better get cracking! I'm linking up!
