Antique Quilt VS Modern

For years, I've had a love of antique quilts--just thinking about how pieces of fabric from various resources came into being a quilt is a fascinating study.  Thank goodness, many of these antique quilts live to tell their story.
Take this quilt from collection of Mingei International Museum
Just look at all those blocks of diversity!  Small to large pieces combine
to give us a visual interest into this quiltmakers life.
Temecula Quilt Company is hosting their Olympic challenge during the 2016 Olympics
Their version of the pattern is on the website free of charge throughout the duration of
the games.  I'm going to see if I can recreate this antique quilt--how about you?
Are you up to the challenge?
