Modern Mini Challenge


Posted on March 5th, by Amy in finished quilt. 14 comments

I am squeaking in at the deadline for the Modern Mini Challenge with Ellison Lane Quilts.  I shared a few inspiration pieces almost a month ago with the blog hop, and promised myself I would participate.

Modern Mini Challenge

Yay for a quick finish today!  I’ve worked on this project a little here and a little there.  Today it just needed the binding :)

The piecing is improvised from left over bits from a cutting mishap.

It measures 36″ x 23″, and quilted with simple straight lines, in a brilliant turquoise thread.

Fabrics are Moda Crossweaves.

The challenge of this quilt, was quilting through 5 layers of batting.  I’ve been wanting to make a cushy rug for my kitchen floor for sometime, and finally collected enough batting scraps to do it right!

This is where it will live, and I will have to update you with wash and wear, as it is put to the test in our kitchen.

Check out all the other entries in the Modern Mini Challenge, or hurry and add your own!

Happy Quilting ~ Amy

  1. It looks great! Wow, 5 layers of batting. I’m curious how you basted it? Did you spray each layer to hold them together? I couldn’t imagine pinning through that much!

  2. I have been looking all over for a good kitchen rug out of a quilt. A friend told me she went to a class on how to add gesso to a quilt top and make it more durable and cleanable (is that a word?). Love yours! The colors are great!

  3. I love the texture of the fabrics! And now I think I need a rug :) But I will have to put it at the end of my list because of other time sensitive projects :)

  4. So adorable carpet! I love the design.. i really hope to win it! This will surely look great in our kitchen..

  5. As more and more Catholics are leaving “mother church,” bizarro’s like this guy are left behind. One out of every 10 Americans is a former member of what is becoming a strange, medieval, bigoted cult headed by a coterie of rich, celibate (?) and misgynistic males. Thus guy has some serious issues, one of which is the dead thing on his head! (and you think Cher’s wig was bad) 6 likes
