Fellow blogger, Amy's Creative Side has offered a challenge to finish one project this week as a motivational tool. Great idea Amy! And, if you are not a quilter, finish something else this week. Come back and post it here for all of us to share in your accomplishment and get a ^5.
I have the new Moda fabric - Tend the Earth - by Deb Strain. I have one charm pack and one jelly roll. The fabrics are absolutely beautiful. They are based on a garden theme - birds, butterflies, old planters, in the spring colors of blue, green, purple and brown.
But I have been staring at the fabrics for two days. I can't come up with an original design. Do I want it to look minimalist? The fabrics are a little busy. I can surround the darks with lights. Should I go through my stash and find some fabrics to match? Find some solids?
I love every fabric individually, but collectively, I am struggling. Until the modern quilt became minimalist, I was satisfied with fabric collections like this. Now, I am wondering if I should go down the modern path or find something else. I really want to create my own path.
So my challenge is to design and finish a quilt top using this amazing fabric line, Tend the Earth by Moda.What will be your challenge?
