Be Inspired | NYC Metro Mod Quilters Cirrus Solids Challenge


Finished Cirrus Solids HST Challenge quilt

We had the opportunity to work with one of our local quilt guilds, NYC Metro MOD Quilters, on a Cirrus Solids HST Challenge. The challenge was to create a block using one of three color combos and using only half square triangles, with an added touch of only one or two accent triangles in the block. The results are amazing! Here is the finished piece of all the member’s blocks, which were jointly arranged and then pieced by Maria Gualdoni and quilted by Rachael Dorr. You can see the 3 winning blocks below (one block from each of the color combos).
