Modern by the Yard Cover

At the beginning of the year I had several deadlines, four in fact all due before QuiltCon in February, and now that the latest issue of Modern by the Yard e-zine is out I can finally share my Follow the Leader quilt!!

My Follow the Leader quilt features Christa Watson's newest fabric line with Benartex Contempo Studio, Abstract Garden.  I love Christa's playful prints and that each of her lines coordinate with the other previous lines.  The background on this quilt are grey prints from her Fandangle fabric collection.


This design is fat quarter friendly and is 100% compatible with one of my favorite templates, the Tri-Rec tool!  I wish I would have remembered to take more pictures before sending the quilt to Benartex.  I did manage to get a quick shot of the quilt top.  I can't help but smile when I see all those bright cheerful colors.

I hope you will take a moment and check out the latest issue of Modern by the Yard.  It's comp…

"What... wait, I think I just got a quilt in Quiltcon."

Those were the first words out of my mouth when I received one of two acceptance letters from the MQG in my inbox today.


I am completely surprised and thrilled and excited and shocked!  Two of the three original quilts I entered in to Quiltcon West 2016 were accepted into the show!!  The lucky quilts are:

Summer Sunset

Changing Hexies

I want to give a big thanks to Jennifer from Simply Imagined Photography for taking such beautiful pictures of my quilts I know it helped in the selection process.

Let us not forget Canoe Paddles.  Unfortunately, Canoe Paddles was not selected even though it is the nearest and dearest to my heart.  In addition to my original three entries I also entered a quilt for the Michael Miller fabric challenge and two other quilts since I had two more entry spots to fill, Paris Medallion and Chest of Drawers, none of which were accepted.  That said I am overjoyed to have any quilts accepted at all.

My head is still in a whirl over the two entries and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome.
