Solids challenge quilt top

Lo, these many months later, I have finished a quilt top for the Modern Quilt Guild solids challenge.

Kauffman gave us each a charm pack of solids (dusty palette for my East SF Bay group). I cut up a bunch of quarter circle units and arranged them in color groups.

Now I'm wondering how to quilt the thing. I've posted the photo in the flickr "How should I quilt this" group (great idea, Christina!).

The shapes remind me of drops hitting a pond, so my first thought is Katie's raindrop pattern.

  2. I love this quilt! It reminds me, in just the smallest way, of the CBC logo, which is a Canadian symbol that I grew up with and is sort of stuck in my subconsciousness.

  9. This is fantastic! It's got a very "deconstructed" and architectural look to it. Very clever and wonderfully executed, as always.
