MNO Challenge Top

Here is my Mosman Night Owls Challenge quilt. The challenge fabric, an off-cut of a Marimekko fabric, is the tiny blue, green and white check. I've used two woven FQs, the FQ I used the Shivas Paintstiks on, a bunch of hand-dyeds and two commercial fabrics.

There are three pieces of fabric in each block so the piecing is dead simple and the character of each fabric isn't lost in the piecing.

The blocks looked different lying on the lounge room floor than they do assembled into a quilt top. I'm not sure I like how they went together and am thinking about taking it apart and putting it back together again. Would help fill the time created by my inevitable procrastination about how to quilt and embellish it.
