Our Fast & Fun quilt top for May 2012 was Modern Chain. Our Third Sunday group met at JoAnns Fabrics in Independence, MO last Sunday, May 20, to work on Project Linus blankets.
Modern Chain is a 36" by 50" quilt featuring 2 solid or near solid fabrics and a fun variety of 6½" squares. As always, Jodie had fabric kits and instructions for us.
Louise is back from spending the winter in Texas and picked the kit with green and orange strips. There are some fun prints in the squares and the green and orange is bold.
Marie stitched a kit with red and blue strips. Marie had the same print squares as Louise, but arranged the squares differently. The red and blue strips make a bright, cheery quilt top.
Jodie stitched a kit with pink and purple strips and some cool print squares. A pretty nifty quilt top.
I picked a kit with purple and pink strips and some of the same print squares as Jodie's kit. This kit got the squares left after Jodie made the kit she stitched, plus a couple of other prints. The purple strips are a different purple than Jodie's.
The pink strips are almost red and were the only strips in any kit that were not a solid color. I really like the tone on tone strips, but Jodie thought they were less "Modern" than the solid fabrics.
As we were wrapping up to go home, Sandy joined us after attending a graduation party for her grandson. She turned blankets in and picked a Modern Chain kit to take home and stitch.
