Little Hex by Kerry

Oh Dear Pam this has taken a lot longer to create that I thought it would. My interpretation of a Modern mini is that a lot of the "Modern Quilts" really are just traditional blocks on a grey or white background with heavy quilting. The little pieces were leftovers from another larger quilt that contained Gelli plate printed fabrics. On its way today.

Mini, she's a Mod by Judith

Thank you Pam for a very interesting challenge. I did have to research the definition of a "Modern quilt" and was relieved to find that really anything goes, some quilts are extremely colourful while others use a very minimalistic pallet. As you see mine falls into the latter category. I’m very much drawn to black and white stripes, so they were my starting point. It was so much fun to work with them while making this little quilt for you.

I have collected  a few books on modern quilting with the idea of using lots of my scraps. I like all the bright colours so decided this was a chance to practice some of the ideas.
Thank you for the invite to dinner in Sydney Pam, I would have loved to come but the timing wasn't right as we have a new grand child arriving in the next week and need to go and be a Granny helper. We hope to be in Sydney early August so might be able to catch up then.

My own "Mini-Modern - From Pam

I too had fun making this little quilt.

Thank you all for your great work.

I will treasure and share them for a 
long time to come.

I can't believe I am late getting this on the blog, - I have had the quilt finished for ages!

But here it is, Pam.... my first "Modern Quilt"!  

The challenge was really interesting.  I wanted to keep it 
clean and fresh, and include some movement.

Thank you Pam, hope you enjoy your quilts!..

Next Challenge - from Lynn

Hello all,

Since our crossing of the ditch is coming to an end this year, it seems to me we could have a go at expressing how we each feel about Our Country, - so that's the challenge I am setting:

"My Country".

Looking forward to seeing all your takes on this...

Mini Modern by Mary

Hi Pam
Here is my wee quilt. I enjoyed the hand stitching and the bright colours with the light background. I have enjoyed seeing the results of your challenge.
Hope you like your quilt!
