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.
