Not only are we stepping into the improv dimension, we are using ALL solid fabrics and there is a color challenge involved. Let's be honest, more ECMQG'rs are comfortable making modern traditional blocks and quilts. This month we're asking you to step away from that zone.
Loree's idea, inspired by Pinterest images, comes from blogger (pattern designer, author, editor and QUILT MAKER) Jenifer Dick.
Jenifer's blog, 42 Quilts .com, hosted a regular weekly feature, Modern Monday, that began way back in 2011 when blogging was hot, Flickr was hotter, and few modern quilt guilds existed. Each Monday for 62 weeks, Jenifer shared her method for making some pretty awesome modern quilt blocks improv style! Every Tuesday, those same blocks were made traditionally.
Our block lottery is improv flying geese, Block 18 in Jenifer's series. Her method and tutorial can be found here.
Remember, it is improv. You will loose a few points. Don't be concerned.
We encourage you to try these techniques - improv and playing with color value. Whoever wins these blocks is going to have a pretty amazing quilt
