Kept In Stitches

Confessions of a fabric hoarder

Each year the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild has a challenge block for the county fair. The Fair’s theme this year is ‘A Country Fair With Ocean Air’….don’t laugh…last year it was ‘Boots, Barns and banjos.’ Our challenge is to create a block in the modern aesthetic which reflects the theme. Hmmm, this took some thinking. I wanted I block that had several techniques within the same block. And the block had to measure 12 1/2″ by 12 1/2 inches. Not a lot of space to reflect such a broad theme. Here’s what I came up with.

    Hi… Visiting via Tim Latimer’s blog. I think this block is terrific! Very creative piecing and great use of color. You did a wonderful job of representing the theme. 🙂
