As a member of the Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild, I have been participating in the Madrona Road Fabric Challenge. We were given 6 fat quarters of the new Madrona Road line of fabric designed by Violet Craft for Michael Miller and told to “quilt something”. 🙂
This challenge was definitely…well…a *challenge* for me. Usually I start with a pattern and then find cool fabrics to fit that pattern. But this time, I started with the fabric, so it took awhile to find a pattern. In the end, I settled on pattern made by IMQG’s own Lindsay from Lindsay Sews. The pattern is called “Quick Triangles Baby Quilt”.
Since I wasn’t able to start on this project until after Christmas, I only had about a month to start and finish the quilt. I wanted something quick and small, and Lindsay’s pattern fit both perfectly. It only called for 6 fat quarters which was perfect since I was a little unwilling to buy more fabric. After all, it was a challenge to use what we were given, right? 🙂 The final quilt size measures about 36″ x 51″.
In the end, I did end up buying an extra half yard for the strip in the back, but that’s ok. I also used Kona white for the border and backing.
