At the November Long Island Modern Quilt Guild meeting we worked on creating inspiration boards that highlight a particular color scheme. We shared our boards and our inspiration at the December meeting. We then each picked a secret partner, to make any project for, to exchange with at the January meeting.
This was the inspiration board that Kim @lelandavestudios created. Such a pretty board!
I needed to decide what to make that was pink, green, orange, floral and feminine, AND that would live up to this gorgeous inspiration board. I started with some inspiration from Victoria Findlay Wolfe. She has a very pretty Big Block Star quilt pattern using her Mostly Manor collection. After fussy cutting for the star block I then created some improv made fabric using fabrics from Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, and Katy Jones.
Some straight line quilting with the walking foot...
Some free motion quilting...
I love how this small quilt finished. I think it's perfect as a large table topper or a wall hanging. I loved this challenge and would recommend using an inspiration board and no rules to create something. It's a real skill builder!
And here is my inspiration board and the AMAZING bag I received from Kim:
Have a great week and happy sewing!
