Project Modern Inspiration

I worked really hard this weekend on my Project Modern entry.  It is finished and the photos have been sent to the contest address!  I am really happy with how it turned out.

My sister and her family stayed with us over Thanksgiving (Wed, Thurs, Fri) and left Saturday morning so I did not get much sewing done until then.  Don’t get me wrong – it was great to have them here, but I was a little nervous about finishing the quilt and getting a good picture of it in time to meet the deadline.

This shot of tulips is my inspiration picture.  White tulips are my favorite flower.  They are so serene and elegant! I know it isn’t a lovely photo in and of itself (I could have taken the newspaper off the table!), but I took it about a year and a half ago specifically with the idea of using it to make a quilt.  It has been in the back of mind since then and I am thrilled that Project Modern gave me the push I needed to make the quilt!

I am a little superstitious about showing my quilt before the contest deadline has passed, so I’ll do a post with the quilt and more about how it relates to my inspiration on Wednesday.

I can’t wait to see what the next Project Modern challenge is!

    I can't wait to see your quilt! I'm sure it's going to knock my socks off. Your quilts always impress me.
