I have started my Modern Quilt for the
About 40 members from the NYC Metro Mod Quilt Group
are participating in the traveling show.
Our quilts will be based on answering this question,
"What does modern quilting mean to you?"
I have been pondering that question for a few weeks now.
I'm still not ready to put pen to paper on that one,
so I put needle and thread to fabric instead.
Because this quilt needs to be a specific size, (15x20),
I cut out a big piece of paper that size to make a layout.
I'm doing a kind of spin on a Mondrian layout.
When I was studying advertising design at F.I.T. a million years ago,
I remember doing and ad layout in a similar way,
with great results.
So why not give fabric the same shot?!
This is a lot more planning than I am used to, but
I am trying to make the individual blocks themselves
be more of an intuition piecing process.
I haven't picked out what my interior borders will be yet,
thought I would get all the blocks done first and then
audition some borders.
This quilt must be done and in the mail by September 1st.
It's creeping up fast!!
on another note . . .
The Kid's birthday is tomorrow.
I think we make tie die shirts almost every year at this time.
Hehe. You never get too old for tie die shirts!
She even threw in a pair of scrub pants too.
Is it sunny where you are today?
Hope you are staying cool and having fun!
