It's my birthday today - so I thought I should celebrate by finally posting pictures of three more quilts I finished up late last fall.
(and I just noticed that I miss-typed 'Churn' when I loaded them into flickr - hate that)
This is the Modern Churn Dash from Amy, over at Diary of a Quilter. I was interested in her method that used the fabrics so efficiently and her pattern is great!
I have been really interested in the effect of reversing the conventional negative space. I love Amy's alternating of the negative space with these blocks.
I was in the midst of my first fabric diet/quilt challenge with Leigh, so I was running low on neutral solids. Using gray on the back turned out so well!
This next one was simply a collection of many of my favorite blues and greens. When you look at my fabric stash, they are leaning towers, way higher than anything else!
(don't tell them, but I've really started to love the pink/orange/yellow combination)
Finally, red and blue in fun 'There's a Square in There' improvish blocks. This was just a plain ol' fun quilt to make!
Now, off to ruin my healthy eating/exercise plan a little more. I bought myself a small chocolate ganache cake at Trader Joe's today. We aren't having my official birthday party until Saturday with my Mom and Dad. So I had to get a treat for today :)
Thank you for both the comments of support and also disagreement to my last post. I enjoyed the email conversations with both sides.
