Atlanta Modern Quilter {AMQ}

I've been MIA from blogging these last few summer months thanks to a crazy work schedule and traveling to conferences... but, I'm back!  I have so many new and exciting projects and things to write about, so I'll start with this one:  the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild.  I was on the Modern Quilt Guild checking out their new Project Modern Challenge and saw that Atlanta has a chapter.  So, I joined and am now a member of the Atlanta Modern Quilt Guild, which I'm going to call AMQ for short.

This brings me to my next small project, about which I'll be blogging in the next few weeks, which is part of a bigger project by AMQ.  AMQ was asked to submit a quilt to the new Georgia Textile Museum.  The quilt is to displayed, possibly used for advertisement, and then auctioned as a fundraiser for the museum.

Each person is making color block squares that measure 12.5 x 12.5 and each block will be a different color.  I'm going to make 2 blocks and am currently awating my color assignments.  I think it's going to be a lot of fun designing my blocks.  Our only restriction, if you even want to call it that, is that we sew our block of almost entirely (95%) of that color. Otherwise, we can design it however we want, as long as we use modern print fabrics and put a modern push on the look.  No problem.

I'll post again in a few days about my color assignments, designs I'm thinking about for my blocks, and possible fabric choices.  I'm so excited about this project and that my blocks may be used for something so cool!
