I attended my first Modern Quilt small group meeting on Wednesday evening.  The group has been formed under my guild to meet the needs of a modern quilt group of quilters within our guild.  We have lots of traditional and art group quilters, but the guild is seeing a big interest in Modern Quilting, many of us belonging to the Modern Quilt Guild.
Our first assignment was to produce a modern quilt piece done with triangles.  Maximum size is 18 by 22 inches.  The piece is due in September, pieced, quilted and bound.  
I spent sometime playing around with my triangles and trying to obtain some sort of a pattern with them.  I think finally after a couple misses got it figured out.
I like the elongated star effect.  I used a light grey rather than white as I thought it worked better with my prints.  No idea how I will quilt it yet, but know it will be straight lines going one way or another, at least that is the plan now.   Its a finish thus far for the week.  
So I'm linking up with at least somewhat of a finish:


  1. How nice to break up a bigger guild into groups with different interests. Triangles can make for some amazing designs...I like where you are headed!

  2. That sounds like a nice expansion to your quilt guild. I really like the little piece you've created. I look forward to seeing how you decide to quilt it. --Andrea

  3. I've always been drawn to those elongated star patterns. Best of luck with the challenge!! (And thanks for the reminder that my own guild challenge is coming due, too.)

  4. Hi Donnalee, nice pattern. It's going to be great!

  5. those elongated stars are perfect. I love HSTs and all they can do.

  6. I love gray backgrounds! Your stretched stars look great!
