Sedimentary is one of my submissions to the Modern Quilt Guild Exhibit that will be in Houston this fall. This quilt started with the idea of making a quilt from strips with the second strip in each row being a contrasting color. After I sketched out the idea, it reminded me of learning about sedimentary rocks at school. I always loved the rock units.
When it came to choosing fabrics, I couldn't resist the contrast of the vivid oranges and the soothing greys. I quilted Sedimentary with simple horizontal lines to reinforce the piecing idea. I used grey thread in the grey sections and orange thread in the orange section. Since I didn't need to do any marking, it went very quickly :) It came out to be my favorite throw size - about 54" x 72".
Decisions about which quilts are accepted are supposed to be announced by the end of March. Wish me luck! Did you enter anything?
