Make it Modern challenge quilts

Earlier this year we were invited to have a display at the Victoria Quilters' Guild show. We gave our members the following guidelines: size to be between 18" and 25" square, only use solids, and re-interpret a traditional block in a modern way.

This is what our members came up with.


Anne, "The Big One," house block/bargello



Barbara, "Nine Patch Cubed," nine patch



Grace, "Now You See Me, Now You Don't," chevron


Jay, "Free Flying Geese," flying geese


Judy, "Sun and Waves," drunkard's path


Kate, "Maude," log cabin


Lois, "The Devil's Claws," the devil's claws


Mary, "PriMary Out of the Blues," flying geese, drunkard's path


Natalie, "Flying Geese," flying geese


Netta, "Flower Burst," starburst


Nicole, "Grey Goose and Gander/Waft Your Wings Together," flying geese


Nicole, "Grandmother's Shady Garden," English paper pieced hexagons


Pam, "All the Pretty Colours," four patch, half square triangle, pinwheel, triple rail


Pat, "Sun on Canola," drunkard's path


Ruth, "Stairway to Heaven?" Jacob's ladder


Sarah, "Graffiti Geese," flying geese, paper piecing


Terri, "Nine to None," nine patch


Ursula, "9 by 9," nine patch


And the winners chosen by our audience that evening! Dinky Doo Fabrics sponsored generous prizes for these quilts.
