I was running around the internet as usual when I happened upon the blog of the recently formed Modern Quilt Guild, a collection of people around the country (and now the world) who make contemporary quilts using traditional techniques.
I've enjoyed quilts as long as I can remember, but never attempted one myself for a number of reasons (namely, lack of time and skill). But now that I've seen it, Elizabeth Hartman's Paintbox Quilt could put me over the edge into quilt-land, wow! The front is a perfectly organized array of square that reminds me of our Color Block clock:
And the back is the paintbox:
I love the idea of having a color reference chart on the back of a bed covering. Or maybe I would use that as the front! In any case, if you are smitten with this project, Elizabeth is generously heading up a Paintbox Quilt-Along on her blog, Oh, Fransson! The quilt-along started in January of this year, but you can jump in at anytime.
Elizabeth's blog includes a Paintbox reference page, and she has also set up a Flickr group for those who are participating to post pictures of their progress.
