From K - A modern pow wow

Unable to simple focus on one project at once, I took the opportunity to kick off a new quilt idea this weekend. Cluck Cluck Sew's Pow Wow quilt pattern has been rolling around in my mind ever since I began work on my last finished quilt Boys + Birds + Bees, using their equally lovely Inside Out pattern.


Cluck Cluck Sew's patterns have recently become some of my favourites to sew. Clear, concise, and printed on mid-weight card stock, they are a pleasure to read, follow and sew. I knew the moment I came across the Pow Wow pattern that it would make a fantastic modern quilt so I tossed it in my shopping cart.

Black and white prints have become a staple for me this year so I broke out my remnant stash to make up this pattern in a bit of a scrappy style.


My idea is to use a bright Kona solid background, and gradients of black to grey to white for the arrows. I'm currently tossing an idea around of off-setting the rows so they resemble divided chevrons, but I'll see how the blocks come together first.


Now the hard part is to decide which bright Kona solid I want to use! What WiPs have you been adding to your list?
