The fabric is sooooooooo NOT modern, but I suppose a challenge has to be a bit challenging, right? Here is what I came up with.
Kitty in the Window
My second block was definitely inspired by a couple of guild members who shared their beautiful work at the last two meetings. Did you know we have "sew and share" every month? It's a great source of inspiration! Check out these two blogs to see what inspired me. The original block from Eagle's Nest Designs Balance and from Sew I'm Pressed comes Balance Block.
I suppose this is proof that anything can be turned into something modern if you use small doses and add solid fabric. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog today. If you are local and want to attend the next guild meeting to see how everyone else used this fabric we will be meeting on September 4th at Ruby Street Quiltworks.
Now it's time to decide what to work on next. Do I start a new project with all the fun fabric I got this summer or do I go back to working on Star Shadow? Decisions, decisions. Perhaps I should just practice my Free Motion Quilting (FMQ) today before I dive into something else. It's nice to see the cutting mat cleared off and know I only have one UFO at the moment. :)
