Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Build Block Reveal:

“Light and Dark”

Last night’s meeting was so much fun.

This month we revealed our blocks for Vicki Fletcher’s prompt:  “Light and Dark.”  Vicki homesteaded in Alaska for over 20 years, and the picture she gave us as one key to her prompt showed a dark tree against a sunrise/sunset bright background.  She did not limit our colors or the size of the blocks we made.

The blocks that came in knocked our socks off, plain and simple.  And we all look forward to seeing the quilt come together.  Here are the blocks, but unfortunately they would not all fit together on the design wall.  To see all the blocks individually, and if you have Facebook, go to our site:  Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild.

Despite the fact that Vicki has made recent quilts with lots of blues and greens, she loves the red family.  It was amazing to me how many of the blocks echoed the reds/pins.  And also how many blocks had yellow/gold.  It will be fun to track both of the families around the final block placement.  What rich and compelling colors showed up for this quilt.

Here’s the block I made for her—with bare trees

from Carolyn Friedlander’s “The Grove” pattern.

We are having so much fun with this project!
