When I bought this bicycle material I had the idea to use just 
solids with it. I had all my colors picked out and sitting in 
my sewing room while I was working on another quilt. 

After looking at the stack of material, I thought a few 
chevrons, polka dots and a black/ white cross hash fabric would 
look great in with the solids so I mixed it up a little. I quilted
 my first circles in this quilt; I was influenced by the wheels and now 
think I am ready to push myself a little more in my machine quilting.

I really like how this turned out, I will have to wait for someone 
in the family to have a baby boy to give this to.  
Anyone want to make an announcement?

Madrona Road Challenge

The Modern Quilt Guild issued a challenge to all  guild 
members and the St. Louis MQG has taken up the challenge. 
We were given some Madrona Road fabric, 
by Michael Miller with instructions to use only solid colored 
fabric  with it and the project had to have some quilting.

My entry is a quilted baby blanket. 
This will eventually be donated.
