If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably noticed that I've been working on something extra special! A few weeks ago I was contacted by the folks at Free Spirit Fabrics to take part in the Modern Solids Challenge along with several other fabulous bloggers. We each received a BEAUTIFUL Denyse Schnidt's Modern Solids fat quarter pack & our challenge is to create a Modern Quilt using Traditional Inspiration. Hello, beautiful!
It didn't take too long to come up with a color scheme -- a gradient of blues, with just a pop of citrus green. I tend to gravitate towards traditional, geometric designs, so I've chosen to put a modern twist on the traditional Irish Chain design.
So, who are the other designers? It's quite the list!
John Adams of Quilt Dad
Faith Jones of Fresh Lemons Quilts
Heather Jones of Olive & Ollie
Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced
Holly DeGroot of Bijou Lovely
Latifah Saafir of The Quilt Engineer
You can follow along with all of our progress over on Instagram using #ModernSolidsChallenge, too!
