Modern Mini Challenge quilt!

Hi guys,

I was able to dig out my sewing machine this weekend…now that was exciting! LOL

I really wanted to get this little quilt done for the challenge and with focus I was able to finish!

I got the idea for the eye chart style from Jodie over at Ric-rac….she has one on her sewing room wall that looks fantastic!

If you can figure out what it says you probably know what movie the line is from….it is from Tangled – the song they sing in the Tavern.

These are my flying lanterns! I was going for the subtle look of them gradually blending into the quilting.

Quilt stats -
Size - 13” x 17”
Fabrics - Grey background from Sunkissed by Sweetwater and others from Katie by Jennifer Young.
Techniques – raw edge applique and free motion quilting.
Finished – 4 March 2012

“Way down deep inside I have a dream” – don’t we all? I think we should!

Great idea for a quilt! Although it took me some time to decipher the words. Couldn't find out where one starts and where it ends ;)! You will definitely get my vote (do we get to vote?)
