Modern Classic from Leftovers (Between the Blinds) from Sew Sunshine



This is the MQG modern classic makeover pattern by Diana Vandeyar called "Oblique" for the Feb 2017 issue. 
I originally made the Chess on the Steps by Krista Hennebury. I named mine 'Strength and Beauty' HERE


I thought I could use additional fabrics in the composition with the specific ones the MQG listed but I don't think that is what they wanted. So with lots of leftovers I decided to see if I had enough fabric left to make another quilt. 




I think I want to call mine "Between the Blinds"

Modern Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

Michael Miller Fabrics donated some fabric to the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild to help with our charitable quilt-making. I picked up a bundle of fabric at the last meeting and I finally pulled it out to come up with a plan.
This border print is super cute and deserved to be highlighted. I did some measuring and decided on a layout. I worked up a design in Electric Quilt, pulled fabrics from my collection to make up the top, and got cutting.
