The Modern Metallic exhibit at Quilt! Knit! Stitch! was very well done. I liked the coordination of color and theme and I think the quilts were well placed to play off one another.
From the show information- Modern Metallic :: An exhibit showcasing modern quilts made by members of the Modern Quilt Gulids in the Pacific Northwest. Quilts feature the use of metallic design details including, but not limited to fabric, thread and themes.

Elementally, My Dear Watson! by T. Lawrence-Simon
The concept of this one is cool. This is an interpretation of the Bohr model of the chemical element silver.

It wasn't until looking at the photos again today that I noticed the element of the window in Rain. I love the combination of curved improv piecing and the straight lines below.

Well done Pacific Northwest Modern Quilters! I look forward to next year's challenge. The rumor is that it will involve solids and I'm totally on board with that!
