a quilt challenge

monday was the first la modern quilt guild meeting of the year! at the meeting, we were all given a pack of charm square solids donated to us by the lovely folks at robert kaufman! we were also given the challenge to make a quilt using only these squares, plus one more fabric.

i have so many ideas of what i want to do going through my head... now to just pin it down to one! i'm feeling very inspired by my friend mary's monochromatic sampler that she's working on. it's really going to be great!

speaking of monochromatic quilts, i think i might be making one soon! the modern quilt guild just posted their second project modern challenge and i'm totally ready to take it on. i am really into solids right now and the idea of making a solids quilt all in similar hues is really appealing. i'd love to make one using shot cottons. i think the added texture would be a nice touch!

All signs are pointing to solids! I was inspired by a block I made for a challenge at our NYC Modern Quilt Guild, and now yours got the charm packs, and finally the Project Modern challenge...I think you have no choice, submit to the solids! Can't wait to see what direction you take.

We're going to do the RK Challenge at our newly formed Front Range Modern Quilt Guild, I just haven't told them yet! :) I know they'll all be giddy with excitement, though. I can't wait to get started!
