We had the unveiling of the Book Challenge #2 a couple of weeks ago and I am finally pulling together the photos to share with you. It was my turn to choose the book and I decided that we would use a pattern from Alex Anderson’s ‘Simply Stars’ called ’54-40 or Fight’. Alex used 6″ finished blocks in red and blues and alot of plaids.
Jane did her version using lots of black and white prints and a variety of Moda marble fabrics in both bright colors and shades of grey. Isn’t it gorgeous !
My version is done entirely with solids. As you can tell…. she is a better photographer.
We never shared our design or color choices during the challenge so it is really interesting how our quilts look so similar. We both decided to change the pattern and make a rectangular quilt using bright colors and grey in the border. I added sashing and Jane switched up the outer border although the big difference is the color placement. Read a little more about our book challenges here.
