Riley Blake MQG Challenge – Design complete

Have you seen the Riley Blake Modern Quilt Guild Challenge?? Our guild handed out fabric sometime in October. I have only started now, and until now I had no idea what I was going to do.

Here are the fabrics (picture from MQG page):

The Navy gingham, Hipster Orange, Yellow Polka dots and the Aqua/Teal zig-zag fabrics made me think of different phases of a fine day.

Sunrise: Yellows + Oranges
Mid-day: Yellows + bright blues
Sunset: Purples + Pinks
Evening: Navy blues + Blacks

This lead to this design “A Fine Day”. Each of the color blocks will be improv scrap blocks, not solid as in the design below.

I plan to quilt it with some circular quilting on the lower half and then radiating lines on the top 1/2 in various colored thread.

In the challenge, you can add any Riley Blake fabric + any solid. Tomorrow, I will post some of my additional fabric choices.

Are you entering the Challenge? What are your plans?
