A MQG Modern Classic

If you are an MQG member, you might have read about the MQG Modern Classics, where they are re-releasing some of the previous Quilt of the Month patterns in a fresh new palette. Here's the challenge to us as members:

"Choose any MQG pattern in the Resources section and make it using our 2020 color palette. Follow along with the fun using the hashtag #mqgmodernclassic and enter your quilt to be a part of a special MQG Modern Classics exhibit at QuiltCon 2021. 
To be eligible for the exhibit, a quilt must be made from an MQG Quilt of the Month released prior to 2020 and in the 2020 color palette."
Well! I glanced through the patterns, and quickly found one I wanted to make. It's "Note to Self" by my Bee Sewcial mate Karen Foster/@capitolaquilter. Choosing fabric from the palette took a while, but I finely chose Moda Bella Solids in Violet, Petunia, and Mustard.

So the quilt is not done yet, but the top is, and it was really fun (and quick!) to sew together. Just thought I'd post a little progress post now in case you want to consider joining the challenge too!


  1. Refreshing! Your color choices make it new. Great piecing too.

  2. How awesome to see that you are joining in. Great pattern and color palette choice!

  3. I like this! The colours are really fun. :-)

  4. The colors are fantastic! Right up my alley!

  5. Thanks for choosing Note to Self, the revisiting of patterns is such a great project for members.
