Show and Tell No #1



Whilst the computer was out of action I finished up a couple of quilts. This one is my first effort at *modern* quilting.

The fabric is a honey bun of Soire'e by Lila Tueller for Moda.


It was impossible to use up all the fabric and even though I made a pieced backing I still have some strips leftover!

To balance all those angles I decided to quilt a loopy meander all over it and I just had to use a spotty backing fabric and stripe binding!


I really enjoyed making this quilt which measures 36 x 52 inches and to make my day, it was accepted into the Fresh Modern Quilts Gallery on Flickr.

Happy Stitching...Ann

  2. Congratulations on being accepted into the Fresh Modern Quilts Gallery! It fits perfectly, so I coudln't imagine why they wouldn't accept it. It's beautiful and springy and I love it. Makes me want to go out and buy the same fabrics to make one of my own.

  4. I have decided that I'm really behind the times. I've never heard of Fresh Modern Quilt Gallery. I'm going to have to get modernized myself. The quilt is really pretty. It's always fun when something new turns out so well. Connie204

  11. Absolutely stunning! No wonder it was accepted into the Quilt Gallery... Even with temps in the ninety plus category here, I would be willing to turn up the air-conditioning and curl up with this one! Maybe better to be across the room and enjoy the colors... Great job on the quilting (I looked closely) and the striped binding is the perfect finish.

    But wait--Show and Tell #1? Is there more to come? Mary
