Here is my entry for the Habitat Challenge in the Modern Quilt Guild. I've been wanting to do a quilt using several shades of white as the background and decided this was the perfect time. Because the fabric design isn't really my usual style, I also thought that cutting it into small pieces would make it more to my liking.
Creating the blocks looks more complicated than it really is. I used Linda's instructions for swap blocks I'd made for her a few months ago. Piecing a few random Habitat bits here and there into the border helps carry the theme to the edges of the quilt. My quilting is just simple wavy lines running vertically throughout the quilt. (I had to do something easy since I'm still hampered by a cast on my hand.....Although, wait! I usually always do something easy anyway!)
The sky blue back has an inset of the gravel colored border fabric plus one strip of each of the six Habitat fabrics used to make the front. I also added a piece of selvage as testimony to the challenge. The binding is a dark grey Habitat dot with 3 sections of orange solid spliced in.
My idea for naming the quilt came from seeing fence posts around a neighboring field that all have a rock sitting on top them. The fence surrounds a field of pumpkins, so I added some pumpkin colors in two of the rows.
I like the neutral, but funky feel, my quilt ended up having. I'm glad that I participated in the "challenge" of using fabric that I would not normally choose! You can see other Habitat Challenge quilts here and here.
