Well, I have know about the Modern Quilt Guild Challenge now for several months, and since the deadline is July 31st, I figured it was time to make a start on this beautiful pile of The Cottage Garden Prints by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake Designs.
So this morning, I started pressing all of my Fat Eighths hoping for inspiration to strike on what I wanted to make with them. And as I was pressing, I turned around and noticed my pile of Irish Chain Quilts, and how it is half as high as it once was as 8 quilts are out on a shop hop. And bam perfect project!!! Make some more quilts from Irish Chain Quilts!!!! I decided right off, that this fabric and challenge was perfect for Unraveled. I can't wait to start cutting!!
Oh, and I noticed this morning, that Amazon has marked Irish Chain Quilts down lower than I have ever seen it before. So if you happened to put it on your wishlist, now might be a good time to get it while it is on sale ;)
I hope you have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
Um, yes, I think today would be a great day to start your project! I seem to leave things until the last minute, too, and then fly to get them done and usually do.ReplyDelete
Those fabrics will make a great Unraveled! Best wishes powering through 'til the 31st Melissa! LOLReplyDelete
What a beautiful assortment of fabrics you have to create your Unraveled quilt with. I have your book on my wish list, Irish Chain quilts are one of my favorites to create. But, I have always just followed a pattern and never imagined the patterns that you have created. They are magnificent and hopefully for my Bday or Christmas, I will receive a copy and begin creating each and every one of your patterns. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful day creating!ReplyDelete
I picked up your Irish Chain Quilts book this weekend from a LQS. It was not my usual LQS since my bee did a bit of shop hopping around for a day of fun (and BBQ!). So excited to see it in person, and I might have got the last copy they had on the shelf! Now that I have my very own copy, I need to start making an Irish Chain Quilt! Yay!ReplyDelete
I can't help but laugh a bit. I've had your book on my wish list for quite some time now, and literally just bought it 5 minutes ago on amazon-- just before I read this! Can't wait!!! :)ReplyDelete
Great choice! I have more books than I can use already, but good to see these yummy fabrics.ReplyDelete
So you use fat eighths for this? I have a fat eighth bundle I'm holding on to for the perfect project.ReplyDelete
Let me know how you like modern quilts, I'm still on the fence. LReplyDelete
I love the pile. I hope you had a great day cutting cutting cutting. That is one of my favorite things to do lolReplyDelete
