I finally finished my Habitat Challenge quilt a couple of weeks ago! My little assistant tried to raise her arms high enough...
but alas, she was a wee bit too small.
So we hung it up on the fence. If you haven't heard about the challenge, the modern quilt guilds were offered the challenge of taking a bundle of Habitat by Jay McCarroll and making something with them. Our guild decided on small quilts.
I knew I wanted to cut it into small pieces. It is such busy fabric, and I also wanted something simple and modern. I found Kate Conklin's pattern called Scattered Showers and knew it was perfect for what I wanted to do. It was an easy little quilt and came together very quickly. I could also see fussy cutting some of my Heather Ross little scraps and using them in this pattern.
I kept the quilting simple and modern as well with some random straight line quilting in a slightly darker grey thread.
I used Kona ash for the background and then used Kona charcoal for both the back and the binding.
One quilt top turned quilt! Five more quilt tops and/or completed blocks to turn into quilts! Why do I always get burnt out after I finish the tops?
