My Quilt has a Ribbon

My Quilt has a Ribbon!  I should clarify that it was a very cute participation ribbon, handmade by Janet.

I participated Project Pure for the Philly Modern Quilt Guild by making a butterfly quilt using a charm pack.  I was able to finish just in time to share the final quilt at my first guild meeting tonight.  It was a great group of quilters that really had fresh creative quilts to share!  It was great to see these quilts in person and meet some of the bloggers that I have been following online.  I am looking forward to our next meeting in October.

Dunder even likes the quilt too!

“Pure” Progress

The project pure for the Philly Modern Quilt Guild needs to be finished by Tuesday.  Thus, I spent the past weekend sewing away to practice my curves by using the pure charm pack with a rattlesnake pattern.  I was only able to make 4 squares with a single charm pack.  When designing the layout for the four squares, I kept leaning towards an outline of butterfly wings.  Thus, I added a butterfly body and antennas.  Here is butterfly mini-quilt.  The quilt is complete with mini-stippling for the wings and a circle doodle for the background.  Tomorrow night, I will work on the binding in time for Tuesday’s meeting.  Wow – that was a quick quilt.

Project Pure Fabric for the Philly Modern Quilt Guild Challenge

I went to the Mancuso Quilt Show in Oaks, PA.  It was a wonderful show that was full of inspiration.  My favorite part of the show was seeing Kaffe Fassett’s quilts from several of his books.  It was a surprise to see his quilts and I loved every minute looking at the flow of the wonderful fabric.

Luckily I had a shopping list to keep me from being overwhelmed at the show!  On my list was a Moda charm pack of Pure by Sweetwater so I can participate in “Project Pure” for the Philly Modern Quilt Guild Challenge.  For this challenge, we create a unique quilt to show off at our September meeting, which will be my first meeting!  Hopefully, I can pull off this quilt by Tuesday…
