Awesome workshop this Saturday! Paul from the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild hosted an all day workshop entitled "Mod Mosaic".
This workshop is based on Elizabeth Hartman's Mod Mosaic quilt block technique. It was so fun.
Here is the beginning of some of my blocks.... chose an aqua-red theme for my mosaic. Plus cups of Stash mint tea... it turned out to be a very lovely afternoon.
This quilt top by Paul - loved the examples of 1/2 inch sashing between fabrics. This tiny sashing which we called 'grout' had a really big impact.
This quilt featured was made in 2011, in a collaborative bee by the Vancouver Modern Guild, - the block arrangement by Paul. This block design is so versatile. Look how graphic and bold it looks with the reds, greys & blacks.
But look at Vera's blocks in soft reds and greys, so soft:
Here is one of Kat's blocks in fresh greens and blues:
Cheryl used bright juvenile prints - very sweet:
I have completed several blocks and haven't been able to decide what fabric to use as a background for my aqua-red blocks. Here is what I have come up with so far....
Above is a pale aqua print by Lecien which I like.
Above are some of my blocks on light grey background. I like this too.
Above, again, on this teal solid by Moda. Hmmm.
And with yellow solid and below with lime green.I actually like them all only I imagined using a print as my background. Just an idea that I can't shake but haven't found the right fabric for....
Happy Sewing All.
