Madrona Road Challenge


The February KCMQG meeting was the reveal for our Madrona Road designed by Violet Craft challenge quilts. Michael Miller generously supplied the guild with fabric and we were each given a fat eighth bundle. We could add more Madrona Road fabric or solid fabric. We had to choose a traditional quilt block and make it modern. The traditional block had to be included somewhere on the quilt. I chose the churn dash. I should add we have over a foot of snow here, so here is my quilt in the snow!

I made the label and framed it with leftover selvages and lovingly named it “Donkey Dash.”
