Perhaps you've seen me go on and on about the Modern Quilt Guild's 100 days of quilts. Perhaps not. But, let me just say that I have been so inspired by the modern movement that I couldn't stop myself from making my own liberated quilt.
The backing fabric was my inspiration. I dyed all the solids for the front and just sort of let the design happen as I went along. I quilted it in straight lines that remind me of plaid.
The first photo shows the backing, and the second is taken beside my porch where the tulips are confused by the 50 degree weather we've had the last week and are sprouting!
