CMQG Modern in the City Challenge

I just entered a quilt in the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild/Naperville MQG Special Exhibit to be shown at the International Quilt Festival here in Rosemont, IL.  We won't know if we were accepted for a bit, but let me show you what I was working on this past weekend....

And here was my inspiration:  The Cloud Gate sculpture in Millennium Park, aka, the Bean.  The quilt challenge was "Modern in the City" so I picked a piece of modern art that I liked...  and I was very happy with how the finished quilt turned out.  It challenged me to do both paper piecing and curved piecing, both of which are techniques I usually avoid because I get frustrated very easily.  (Know thyself!)
