After I wrote a review on my blog about the McCall's ebook: (Click here for a free copy), I just had to try making one of the quilts.

I pulled fabrics from my stash in colors that I like and started cutting, but quickly realized my background fabric choice did not fit the design mode of a modern quilt. See the bottom fabric below; the print is much to busy.
I found a linen look fabric at my local quilt shop which worked very well and kept the look of a modern quilt. At first I thought I might add borders and of course, appliqué. But, no to both. The top is finished. I'll have some fun next exploring how to quilt a modern quilt.
My quilt does still look quite different from the photo sample in the ebook. I will say it was fun to make. It's been a while since I cut and pieced a quilt anything like it.
