Quilt Along with Leah Day - week 19,20 & 21

I haven't got a chance to link every week after we started the Modern Quilts at QAL with Leah Day.
For the past couple of months I have already been intrigued about Modern Quilts and Quilting on Modern Quilts after I read about Angela Walters. So, I have been in the process of designing my modern quilt.

Traditional Disappearing nine-patch Quilt Design
This quilt features two different blocks. I choose Moda Bella Marbles blues for this quilt and Moda Bella White as my neutral fabric. My approach was my choosing the color of the fabrics how a quilt can look modern. Probably there are 100s or even more different ways of making a quilt modern. This was just my approach and couldn't look beyond this at this point since I'm obsessed with this quilt block. I have alternated two different blocks.

First Block:
Some people call it disappearing nine patch and I wanted to call it sliced nine patch. Jenny @Missouri Star Quilt Co has a great tutorial on this. Since, Leah mentioned that we work with L block. My sashing for the this block is L shaped. Here is a picture below.



Second Block:
The second block I used is based on a technique called "Stack & Slash". I added a 1.5inches sashing after each cut. So, the block looks like group of rectangles.

I still have lot more work to do to catch-up with Leah's QAL. But at least hoping by end of this week I will be able start quilting this quilt.

Will be posting the picture of the quilt top soon.
