April IMQG Challenge Entry

Yes, it's my first post for April :(  and it's for my April IMQG (India Modern Quilt Guild) April Challenge.

The challenge is to use the colors of the IMQG logo to make a quilt block that reflects what modern quilting means to me.  You can see at the left side of my blog of the IMQG logo, those are the colors I have to use.

I got the free pattern from this website, it has several nice block projects to try with.
I chose Pins and Stars pattern, since it has four colors that exactly I need to meet the challenge requirements.  I am not sure about it reflects what modern quilting means since I am still trying to grab the definition of modern quilting.  Nevertheless, I tried my best to assemble the patchwork at the last days of April so I can learn more about quilting. Here's the result ;)  The block's final size is 12" x 12"

I have to admit, it's tough job to make it precise at the corners :(   I was thinking it's the way I cut the fabric, or else the fabric itself, the plain white fabric is quite stretchy :(  No matter the list of excuses I have, I just need to practice more and more.

I will post the final result of this block, it may turns out as a table runner mostly :)
