Saturday our guild members revealed their challenge quilts for our current challenge - "Modern Solids". We have 33 very different and varied interpretations of this theme. The quilts will be on display at our local library in Batavia - the Richmond Library on Ross Street. If you are in the area I would invite you to stop in and view all of them.
The concept of modern was not hard for me - but solids are not my thing. I like my batiks and hand dyes and surface design fabrics. But, I persevered and came up with two. The first one is based on a photo I had taken at Letchworth State Park of a balloon launch. The quilt is on the left and the original photo is on the right. My second piece is called "Modern Birches" - because - I love all things birch and often depict these trees in my quilts.
