WIP Wednesday, Modern Metallics

On Wednesdays we feature works in progress by guild members. Today we're featuring the WIPs for the Modern Metallic Challenge. These are for a group exhibit at Quilt!Knit!Stitch! in Portland in August. Modern Quilt Guilds in the Pacific Northwest were invited to participate, and we are very grateful to our fabric sponsor Robert Kaufman for donating the Quilter's Linen Metallic that we were provided and used in our challenge quilts. Check out the Modern Metallic Blog for more information about the rest of the guilds participating in the challenge.

Up first is Katy's challenge. It's reversible, so she's still trying to decide which side is the front. Both are awesome! The navy is stunning! with the metallic quilter's linen.

My (Lindsey) quilt has these elongated hexagons on the back. The front was inspired by seeing a brick pattern on a building exterior in Warm Springs, Oregon as I was driving and day-dreaming about what to do for the front of this quilt. I quilted the white space (the white is a Robert Kaufman Textures, and it's wonderful!) with a paisley design, and now I'm in the process of hand quilting the diagonals.


Shannon used a cool technique where she made big pinwheels and sliced 'em up to make the blocks for this:

Sarah G has a really cool plan

And Sarah P does, as well!

Kristin is using this gorgeous silk with hers:

And Amy is planning on using the Mini Hex n More ruler for hers. Until she starts, she's carrying it around on her bag. What a cute accessory!
