Group project

I have managed to add a new project to my must finish. A "neice" of my extended family is getting married in May. Unfortunately, the 3 of us who want to make a quilt for her live 300 miles apart from one another.  After a brainstorming session, the cream backgrounds hitched a ride from Utah. I pulled some lavenders from my stash.  Will need to buy a few more to get to size.  The goal is something muted and modern. Hope Idon't  hurt myself with that stretch from my norm.

I don't know what size quilt you want to make but I made a quilt outside of my comfort zone for a modern young woman last year. If you go to my blog, Priscilla's Workshop at and go to the second page of the gallery(under Pages not Posts), it is the very last one on that page. I used the old-fashioned melon slice pattern but appliqued it rather than piecing it and modernized it with both fabric choice and scale. You could even do the applique on a machine to speed up the process using your machine's blindstitch and clear thread for the top thread. It makes for a striking quilt that is quite modern while also being reminiscent of older quilts.
