Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs is hosting her fourth annual "Best of" linkup. I've decided to share my five favorite finishes of the year. In no particular order...
Greenery was the first Planned Improv: Scrappy Squares quilt that I made. It was the result of the 2017 Pantone Quilt Challenge and my Bay Area Modern guild challenge to make a scrap quilt using squares and rectangles. At the end of 2017 I developed this technique into a workshop. I finished numerous other Planned Improv: Scrappy Squares projects before longarm quilting and finishing this one in 2018. Read more.
Fandangle Scrappy Squares
Fandangle Scrappy Squares is another version of my Planned Improv: Scrappy Squares, I loved working with the cool color way of Christa Watson's Fandangle color palette while exploring the different variations that can be achieved with this technique. Read more.
Pantone Ultra Violet All About Angles
Purple is my favorite color, but so often I don't use it in my quilts. This may be the finish I am proudest of this year. Pantone Ultra Violet All About Angles was pieced in time to submit to the 2018 Pantone Quilt Challenge and received Judge's Second in the "Just the Top" category. The finished quilt hung at PIQF in October 2018. Read more.
Jungle Cabin is one of my favorites because I really loved modernizing the traditional log cabin block by adding negative space and the asymmetry of the overall composition. I look forward to working more with large modern traditional log cabins. Read more.
The Connections Mini was a mini quilt challenge for Curated Quilts. I loved working with my 8-year-old son on this project. He designed the quilt on the design wall. I pieced it and chose the quilting motif. Read more.
