"Off the Grid" Sightings

I've been so delighted to see some people's interpretations of my "Off the Grid" Sliced Nine Patch pattern that was posted on the Moda Bake Shop last month.


Flickr user Mel Sews recently posted this completed quilt. She also used the "Wonderland" line (like my original) but substituted the honey bun strips with a solid brown linen. I love the different look that it gives to the quilt!


Lynne from Quilts and Cats recently completed this stunning version made from the "Tranquility" line by Sandy Gervais. Lynne's using hers as a wallhanging. Hmmmm, a great idea as I think about how we'll decorate our next home ...

Poor Jess (aka hectichousehold) recently broke her arm, and do you know what she did to soothe her pain? She hit her scrap bin and made a quilt block based on my pattern! She even improvised a bit and added a few more slices. Check it out:


I absolutely love seeing what you've all done with my pattern. And I have to admit that I am glad (and relieved!) that you've all said such nice things about the tutorial. I'm still fairly new at this, so the feedback is awesome ... and I'm so glad that you're enjoying it!

If you make an "off the grid" quilt, I sure would love to see it!

  8. Love your quilts! I'm learning to quilt and am more into scrap (Bonnie
    Hunter) or traditional designs but you've got some really cool modern looking quilts. Very interesting.

Well, John, I promised I'd let you know when I finally got mine done - so come check out the finished result at http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/2010/04/hi-all-with-help-of-my-little-assistant.html. (Sorry, I'm not technically savvy enough yet to use Flickr!) I couldn't be happier with it!!
