Two winters ago Jay McCarrol and Free Spirit Fabric donated fat eighths to each member of the Modern Quilt Guild, in each local chapter's colorway choice. At the time, I lived an hour and a half away from the Bakersfield Modern Quilt Guild and attended their meetings. Our goal was to finish our quilts in 3 months (I think...maybe it was 2?). With very good intentions, I went home after the fabric was distributed and made very simple improv blocks, outlined in Kona Ash, which until last week sat untouched in a laundry basket full of unfinished projects. Last week, I finally trimmed and sewed them up, adding a border in Kona Ash for a bit more negative space and to make the quilt a nice lap size, squaring it off at 52 inches.
