One Quilt, Two Quilt, Three Quilt, Orange Quilt?

It seems like so long since I have done a quilt post but there have been quilts brewing here too many in fact. 
Quilt One- Over the weekend I was co-piecing a quilt for the Portland Modern Quilters Guild for a gift we have planned. All I can show you is a little peek. I had never pieced anything like this so it was a fun challenge and I love the grey and chartreuse! 

Quilt Two- After receiving fabric in the mail Saturday, some lovely Wild Thyme I had to hunt down, I am ready to start the quilt for my sister's new baby due in February. Tonight I will start cutting and I will do a whole post about the quilt later in the week.

Quilt Three- I was not confidant about committing to this quilt but after some encouragement from Jen at Betty Crocker Ass I decided to make a quilt for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. If you are from out of state you might not know this is the home of the famous Valori Wells of fabric fame. I love her new line of linen and I made a blanket out of this fabric for my daughter. Valori Wells and Jean Wells own a shop The Stitchin Post in Sisters Oregon. They asked the Portland Modern Quilters Guild to submit a group of quilts for the show and now I am officially submitting. I have been collecting some fabric for awhile with plans of making a quilt for myself, it's about time! I started sketching and it's all coming together.

Quilt four- The Modern Quilters Guild announced their new challenge Project Modern 2. When I heard about the 1st challenge it was too late for me to enter but I am excited about this one which is monochromatic. Orange might be my color but I reserve the right to change my mind maybe it will be neutrals or greens.

There are some deadlines to be met for these so I have to get moving. The most important being my new little Niece who is due February 23rd and I am co-hosting the shower for on the 29th. 


p.s. I made my design wall today!

Wow, you've been busy! I'm so glad you're doing a quilt for Sisters. And Project Modern! Portland will be well-represented again, I think.
