Monochromatic quilt finished and entered

We had our Philly Modern Quilt Guild meeting on Tuesday night and everyone showed off their monochromatic quilts. They will be posted here soon.


I posted this photo a while back as my collection of fabrics to be used for the Monochromatic Quilt Challenge. Looking at this picture now, I must say this has got to be the most over-thought quilt I've ever done! I had an original plan, scrapped it and went bigger. I changed color ideas a billion times in my mind. I went from solids to prints and back to solids. The one constant was that I knew I wanted to work with half square triangles. So where did it end up?

Here's my final quilt for the Monochromatic Quilt Challenge. I've been calling it The Windmill because it's essentially a giant pinwheel. The thing I had the hardest time determining (which is so silly) was which way does this pinwheel spin. {i think i may have gotten it wrong but we'll overlook that}


Close up of the quilting. I couldn't decide on a blue for the quilting so I did a variegated Caribbean blue thread and did within the triangles.

The back is totally random pieces of scraps. I don't think I have any scraps left over from this one!

Of course my label!

I'd love to know what you think of it!

I love this design. It's so simple, yet fun. I have my box of HST I'm working on for a quilt. I might have to try this design. I haven't decided on a layout yet.
