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.

Quiltcon Tomorrow!

Design 2

I designed this quilt while working on Chevrons Revisited Quilt.  This design is pieced and ready to sandwich.

Design 3
I was inspired by the Mighty Lucky Quilting Club and a Brabantia ironing board cover to create this design.  I've purchased fabric for this quilt.

Public Transportation Engineer Quilt
And finally the PTE quilt.  This was originally designed in yellow and blue as a Kona Highlight project but I loved the colors so much from design 3 I repeated them in this quilt.

I'm going to be very busy the coming months making these quilts.  I'm hoping to enter all in Quiltcon East 2017, deadline November!

Speaking of Quiltcon, there's an article in our local paper today, The Spokesman Review,  about the Inland Northwest Modern Quilt Guild and myself.  Judith Spitzer did a great job catching the spirit of modern quilting and Dan Pelle took some great pictures.
