Thinking Cap

The Philadelphia Modern Quilt Guild had a guest speaker at our last meeting – Jay McCarroll.  He presented his new fabric line, Habitat.  It was great to hear his inspiration for the various patterns, along with how he develops a line from various medias, determines a color pallet, and markets his line.  He even kicked-off the Modern Quilt Guild Habitat Challenge.  We have over a yard of various fat eights of his fabric and some FreeSpirit solids that we will use to create an original 12” block.  With over 50 guilds participating, we will have lots of blocks that combined into quilts for Japanese earthquake victims.

I now have my thinking cap on this weekend to come up with my original block design…
