My Anni Quilt wins Project Modern: Challenge 2!


I'm just tickled pink - no pun intended - to let you know that my Anni quilt was chosen as one of the three winners of the Modern Quilt Guild's Project Modern: Challenge 2. I am so excited that it was one of Malka Dubrawsky's favorites, and incredibly honored by her kind words about my quilt. She wrote:


There are so many things I love about this quilt. First off, being a fan of Albers myself, I totally see the reference and I think it's beautifully done. Also, the simplicity of this quilt and the scale of the blocks really work together. I think the pinks take it past it's Bauhaus reference to pop art. It references so much. but is also just plain pretty as well. Great job!


Just amazing! I'm working on writing up the pattern and I'll let you know when it becomes available, because I'd love to see these quilts in tons of color combinations. Can you imagine how great that would be?! I'm really pleased with the design because it's a simple quilt to construct, making it great for beginners, but the large scale blocks and the clean lines really give the finished product quite a lot of visual bang for your buck.






And can I just say that I'm totally flabbergasted that this is my second win? You might remember that my Yield quilt was one of the winners of the first challenge. Incredible!
