For a Winter Challenge, a few lucky Dallas Modern Quilt Guild members were able to get some Madrona Road fabric by Violet Craft and asked to make something, drawing inspiration from the guild. I really wanted to make a cross quilt, some I have seen made for members. Not enough fabric for that but I did come up with a string quilt, something I ended up using all the fabric in. I did add white, grey, yellow, and navy solids, staying a little true to the color palette.
I quilted some mad- plaid looking stripes, yay for straight line quilting. And if you WERE a darning foot, where would you be?
See the chop stick wrappers below? I was inspired to quilt using that pattern. Sometimes you are inspired from the weirdest things.
The back is a Bella Solid yellow with a bit of B/W Ta Dot. I am going to bind it in black? navy? It's too late to think about it today. I have two days until due date.
I did I did I did! I did have enough scraps to make a 12 inch block for our giveaway of all 15 blocks by all the DMQG members who participated in the challenge.
