Sue joined a Modern Quilt Challenge at Quilt-Con. She received blocks made from others and assembled this quilt. We talked about the quilting and I suggested straight lines.
I think it turned out perfect!
I used the channel locks on my machine and didn't mark the lines, just estimated the distance between rows. That adds to the modern feel in my opinion. Some of the blocks appear to be a bit skewed and I guess I could have futzed with it a bit more, but I think it's fine and I hope she does also.
Look at this cute backing fabric she bought it at IKEA!
