Habitat Quilt Top Complete!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013


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.
For the back, I plan to use leftover blocks, more Kona Ash and maybe some Ikea, Numbers too.

Also in the works- this mini quilt with a single strip of sewn together rainbow ordered coins. 

Have a happy day!
