Have you seen the latest Modern Patchwork (March/April 2017) magazine?
Back story: In my local Modern Quilt Guild we did an exchange with some gals from a traditional quilt guild about an hour away. I had written up a simple tutorial, which is what we followed. Then after the exchange my group got together, designed a layout and pieced the top together. (Designing in a group was interesting, I’d like to do that again) Once the quilt was finished, we went to their meeting, did a modern quilt presentation and shared the quilts we had sewn from each others guild. It was a blast.
The quilt in the green/grey setting (in the magazine) was the first quilt. I sewed it to show what I was talking about in the tutorial. After my group got together to set the exchange blocks I wondered how many settings I could come up with myself. I sewed up 20 blocks and found 19 more settings but the blocks were getting ragged so I finally stopped. I enjoyed this all so much I decided to share and sent it in to see if they’d publish it. They did.
Below is one of those 19 settings I came up with and it’s scrappy back. Just finished today. :o)
