I recently purchased a new magazine published in Australia called Quilts & Crafts Simply Modern. They showed a picture of a quilt that was done by Judy Durant that had been displayed at Quiltcon.
Above is the first three rows of the quilt completely pieced.
I really liked it and as I had a pretty good supply of half yards of a bunch of grays I decided to try my hand at it. For the color pieces I used a number of different fabrics from several different lines. Several of them were some Australian prints given to me by my VBF, appropriate I thought. Here are the last five rows of the quilt ready to go. I am anxious to finish these rows up to see how I did with the colors I selected. This is still a project in progress, so I am linking up with

Do you remember these? Originally I hoped I would have enough to do the blocks for my granddaughter's boyfriend's quilt.Well here they are all 88 of them. There are 22 of each outside color. They are ready for her to lay out for the top.
Well one would think I ran out of scraps. Well that was certainly not the case. I am sure they multiply once you turn out the lights, and close the door.
It is a absolute must to get rid of these things. So, I have decided to sew the strips together in lengths, row after row. They are a bit long to get them all in one photo.
But here they are. The width of the quilt will be about 48 inches wide, and length until I run out of scraps or at least 60 inches. Noah my grandson and helper that ironed all the fabrics so I could strip them wanted to know what I would do if we had too many strips cut. I told him I didn't think we would have any left. I could tell that sort of disappointed him, so I think this will be a quilt for him.
As this is now two projects in process I am linking up with

I live on the west coast in the middle valley of California. We have rain this morning!!!!! So outside shots of this finished quilt just could not happen. I saw this quilt on a blog post a couple months ago and really liked it. Cheery for a dark rainy morning. It is 60 by 60 inches, I think a perfect size. I do love this modern quilt movement. This quilt went together over a weekend. Another project done! So I am linking up with.
