I cut squares for this queen-sized quilt over Christmas vacation. Once I started sewing the top came together very quickly. Those 5" squares are so much easier to sew than the improve curves for Savannah Kiss.
Last November, Jan DiCintio at Daisy Janie sent the East Bay Modern Quilt Guild bolts of prints from the organic Shades of Grey line and challenged us to come up with cool stuff. I love the print designs. They're so mod and organic (in every sense). I supplemented with roughly equal grey yardage from my stash, plus a bunch of red prints and solids.
The design has a red pop in the middle that dissolves into light greys, then darker greys. But don't get to attached to all that red -- I'll be slicing it to ribbons as soon as I finish a lone star patchwork for reverse applique. This is my next stencil quilt, and it's not going to be quite as cuddly as the giraffes.
I won't have the stencil done for presentation at our Tuesday meeting, but I'm looking forward to showing this work in progress.
