Guess what? It's next year! And I have a fun quilt to enter in the Modern Quilts category.
This is "Crow in the Wheatfield." The spectacularly bright yellow is Kona's "Color of the Year," "Highlight." Remember the very first yellow highlighter pens? It's that yellow! I'm so lucky to have a great boss at Ruth's Stitchery, who is willing to buy a fabric for the shop just because the staff likes it!
The 'crow' is Hoffman's black batik -- with just the slighted bits of navy blue, just like a crow's wing.
The pattern is adapted from Tula Pink's Houndstooth Check pattern. It's quilted in my favorite "Modern Figure Eight" design.
