Modern by the Yard Cover

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.

NEW Honest Fabric Designs!

Thank you to everyone that has purchased one of my designs at !  My Trellis quilt is doing well and I wanted to offer a more neutral color way so I designed an off white and blue version.


All Honest Fabric designs are available in three sizes: 51" x 60", 68" x 80" & 88" x 104" and quilt up so nicely.  The fabric is soft and the printing is amazing!

I've also added a new design, Light Bending!

Light Bending

This design is inspired by a quilt I made several years back and is now my daughter's favorite quilt.

Chest of Drawers

I think Light Bending has great potential for creative quilting and you've gotta love those bright colors!

If you haven't already go check out Honest Fabric and all the amazing quilt tops!  I have six different designs available and several colorways and am hoping to add a few more this year.
