Ithaca Modern Quilt Guild's First Project Completed

The Ithaca Modern Quilt Guild was started last November and our first project was to take a famous painting and cut up a poster of it and distribute it to guild members to recreate it as a quilt block.  I have blogged about this in the post here, here and here and I thought I should show you the finished project because it turned out MAGNIFICENT! I couldn't be prouder of my fellow guild members.

The project was led (and pieced) by Terri Fendya.  The blocks were made by participating guild members.

These were my two blocks. Can you find them in the quilt?

The quilt was quilted by Kim Michaels and trimmed and bound by Cheryl Moore.

The Ithaca Modern Quilt Guild might be less than a year, but the members already have a very special place in my heart.

I'm linking up with A Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday and Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday to show off this very cool quilt.

Color Me Quilty!

  5. Oh wow! I just love it! I am working on a Starry Night quilt right now too, it is so fun to see your guild's! I will definitely go back to read your other posts on it :-)

  6. Wow--great group project! I'm also glad there's a lively quilting scene in Ithaca. I went to college at Cornell, and even though that was 25 years ago, Ithaca still has a fond place in my heart.
