modern block challenge from

Some time ago whilst I was catching up with my favorite blogs on the web, I found QuiltCon, presented by The Modern Quilt Guild. This is a quilt block challenge with the motto “What  does modern quilting mean to you?” So I thought this could also be a new challenge for me. I have ordered and received the solids from  Fat Quarter Shop.

QuitCon Challenge Modern Quilting

All the colors are very bright, both the cool and warm ones, and the grays have nice shade. These eleven fat quarters are waiting to be cut into smalls pieces and sewn together!

Every morning, when I take my dog for a long walk, I have enough time to think about different designs of modern blocks. Ideas are running through my head: what block size shall I go for, which colors  and what color combinations do I prefer. I have done a few sketches, both drawn by hand and in the computer. Now I just need some time to fiddle around, cut, sew, pin, get the design wall full with pieces, design blocks and rearrange them. Looking forward to this “different work” over the coming weekend.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Looking forward to see your new quilt!!


  2. I would never in a million years go into a fabric shop and pick out those shades……BUT…. every time I see them together I absolutely love them!! They really are what modern quilting is about. Bold and beautiful 🙂 I have no doubt your quilt blocks will be amazing. I must experiment with these colours myself….soon. Have fun! Avis x

      Well, the colors are really fantastic. I am now working on a quilt with solids, but my selection was not as good. Anyway, I shall finish the quilt, don’t want any UFOs.
      Like your last post with the email, I must have a look how it works. Happy quilting; Barbora


      • I’m definitely going to try something with bright solids like yours. I’ve just finished the binding on my Gift Box quilt and I’ll post about it tomorrow as it is too dark to take photos now. I don’t like UFO’s either 😀
