Why am I so bad at math?! I’m really not – I took calculus in high school and statistics in college, but yet, I always screw up my calculations while sewing. These blocks were a disaster of math screw-ups. Tack on another border, tack on another border, tack on another border… iy yi yi! Truly unprecedented stupidity on my part… but at least the stakes weren’t too high.
Anyway, here are my blocks for the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild’s charity quilt made out of Jay McCarroll’s Habitat fabric (previously posted about HERE) donated to our group by Free Spirit Fabrics.
I like the fabrics I selected from the line and I could see a cool quilt (maybe just a simple patchwork) our of these swatches…
Have you heard about The Modern Quilt Guild’s latest and final challenge? It’s theme is Find Your Own Voice! I’m going to go for it. I was really happy with the 2nd challenge – Monochromatic Quilting, but was a little non-plussed with my results. Time for redemption! And how cool is it that Denyse Schmidt is judging? So cool!
I’m going to be pretty coy about my design from here until the deadline (Sept 30), but I can tell you the quilt will be called “Gate to the Shore.” Here’s my inspiration mosaic:
1. Iron Work, 2. Black and blue, 3. black and blue and beautiful, 4. Black Iron Fence, 5. Ironwork blue, 6. gate to the beach
