Le Challenge - Era

It is time for this month's Le Challenge project and the theme is "era".  Once again, this challenge has theme's that I find challenging.
  
My first thoughts on this "era" theme was using 30's reproduction fabrics, civil war fabrics, or making a crazy quilt from the Victorian era.  But then I started looking at mid-century modern art and knew this was the time period I really wanted to work with. 


The inspiration for my mini quilt was the Unparalleled Quilt lesson from the Craftsy Improvisational Piecing Modern Design class.  I really did enjoy working on this project.  Just cutting at will and designing the piece as I went along was a very freeing way to work. 
 
It was also a nice change to work on something new, since 2014 has been my year to tackle my WIPs and scraps.
 
Please check out the other "era" themed entries at Le Challenge.

  10. I love your quilt! I'm sure I will be thinking of it this week when I take the Slash and Insert class from Jacquie Gering when she comes to Grand Rapids. I hope I can make something as lovely as your quilt!
