Our guild is very lucky to be located near so many fantastic designers in the quilt world. This summer we have teamed up with Denyse Schmidt, who has generously provided us fabric from her upcoming Hadley line for a challenge. We were given fat quarter bundles, and are furiously working away on our projects. The fabric will be released to the public later this summer, so its been fun to get a sneak peek. Our instructions from Denyse were to either make one of her patterns, or be inspired by one.
We are going to try to show each members progress, and inspiration. The first is by Sharon Litvinoff, who is doing a quilt based on Denyse's pattern Cog and Wheel. Sharon loves paper piecing, and looked for one that had a lighter feel, with more movement. Sharon said, "I thought the Hadley fabrics would work well with the whimsical pinwheel design."
The finished quilt will be about 46 inches square.
Here is a photo of the back. She is still deciding on how to quilt it, but thinking of an allover crosshatch.
