I polished off a quilt in a week. Here are a few grainy snapshots of the quilt in process.
Here's another picture of the finished product.
Essentially, it's a wonky variation of my Double 4-Patch tutorial. I roughly followed this tutorial to refresh my memory on wonky piecing. I squared up the wonky 4-patches to about 4" and matched them all up with a 4" dark gray background square to create the larger 4-patch block.
Then I used this layout variation, bordered the middle with some more background fabric, pieced the backing with a purple jacquard print from Joann's that doesn't match at all (though I still love it), basted, quilted, and then bound the thing.
For the quilting, I used Oh Fransson's square stippling pattern that she used for her Tokyo Subway Map Quilt-Along a few months back. I might go back and stitch in the ditch around the wonky patches to make them puff up a bit more.
Thanks so much to Robert Kaufman for generously donating charm packs for this guild challenge. Be sure to check out our guild's flickr pool and the Modern Quilt Guild's flickr pool for some great eye candy for this challenge!
