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.

Printology Bundle Giveaway

A while back I was invited to design a quilt for Modern Quilt Studio's new fabric line Printology by Benartex - Contempo.  These prints are inspired by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr's recent travels to Japan.  I'm thrilled that I finally get the chance to share my Reflecting Pools quilt!

After previewing the Printology fabric line I was instantly reminded of a geometric garden and that mix of the classical with the modern.  My quilt Reflecting Pools tries to capture these impressions using various Printology designs.  What's great about this line is the mix of free form and structure making for an interesting composition.  I love the effect of using the micro check as a neutral background on this quilt.  It was definitely an unexpected surprise.
