My Madrona Road quilt is complete!
Thank you to the boyfriend for taking pictures.
There’s a Flickr group for all of the entries. We’re showing ours off at the next guild meeting.
To learn more about the challenge, check out the Modern Quilt Guild.
Look at all of that pebble quilting. It took forever, but it was a lot of fun. Not without injury…I did put a needle through part of my finger. Just the side of my finger…and it only hurt for a little bit. But I was more careful after that.
I’m not 100% pleased with it, but I’m still proud of myself. There’s room for improvement and I don’t think this will be my last pebble quilting attempt.
I will say that I’m not a fan of heavy quilting. The quilt is so stiff and the back seems like a nest of thread. It’s not a nest of thread, but that’s what it seems like. If I was every going to use a quilt, I would not quilt it this heavily. However, it’s OK for this quilt.
The challenge was to take a traditional block or quilt pattern and a modern twist to it. I used granny squares. Some are wonky…
