Island Batik Ambassadors: Modern Challenge

This month, was a particular busy one for me, I completed 3 new quilts designs for the Island Batiks. So now I have to just finish writing the patterns over the next couple weeks.  The patterns and quilts will be available for the Fall Market.

Now to get my Island Batik Ambassador Challenge done for the month.  This month’s challenge is to make a Modern Batiks quilt. 

So I started designing in EQ7, but I also wanted to play with the Half-Rectangle Triangle and the Kite Rulers I got from Bloc_Loc Rulers.  I love using the Bloc_Loc Rulers, they make cutting blocks so much easier.

Once I had my design made, I need to figure the fabric that would work for a modern layout.  I had a package of Fire Island stack (10” squares) and a yard of basic neutral fabric to work with. 

So I add the fabrics to my EQ7 and this is the design I came up with.

 With a few color Modification, I made this small Modern wallhanging.

Final Modern Quilt
 Not bad for my first try with making a Modern Quilt.  The Block has potential for a future project.  I love my Island Batiks fabrics and Bloc_Rulers.

Check out the other Island Batik Ambassador Blogs that have complete their projects.
