This quilt was my submission to the Modern Quilt Guild’s Challenge #3. Organic was the word we were challenged with to build a quilt around. Challenge accepted. I spent lots of time building an idea and looking for inspiration. Then it hit me.
I was driving with my girlfriend while we were out for her birthday and I was looking at all of the vibrant green trees with brown and purple all mixed in along the road. When we got to dinner, I busted out paper and started designing. Later that week I went on bike route along the Monon Trail in Indy and it all come together. Those same colors were exploding along the trail. It made riding 25 miles a little easier.
This is my interpretation of the trail with all the bright bold colors of purple, green and brown that outlined the trail.
Showcasing my quilt Saratoga. Made for cheerful betting.
