I've been putting off selecting a pattern for my Madrona Rd Challenge quilt until recently. I was supposed to pick something that was "new to me" or something I hadn't done before. I browsed the started and finished projects on the MRC Flicker page and was inspired to get started!
I finally settled on Oh, Fransson's Octagonal Orbs block pattern. She posted a tutorial on the MQG website here. She also just recently posted her finished quilt. I adore her bold use of orange, since it is the best color, of course!
Strip pieced yellows and blues...
I have just begun to cut and piece the blocks, so hopefully with the holiday on Monday I can get some serious progress made on this.
