My Modern Quilt Guild Challenge Entry

I have finished my Modern Quilt Guild Challenge quilt!

It will be a gift for my sister, Katie. She lives in Houston and will find out Tuesday if she is having a girl or a boy. I'm betting on a boy...

This quilt was inspired by a quilt I saw on Flickr (see below). I love blue and the two tones on this quilt really made it special to me. I've always loved the log cabin block, but the idea of making a liberated one made me excited to try it.

Thanks! For some reason, my sister still feels entitled to this quilt... So I guess she'll get it. :)

I'm just finishing up her second quilt. It's much less impressive, but still beautiful. It's the one where I mixed Pure charm squares with Lily and Will. I think it'll be a hit and since it's smaller, it might be used more often, too.
