Today, it's this sweet little quilt that was in the special QuiltCon magazine put together by the folks who produce Modern Patchwork at F & W Media. It's a small baby sized quilt that's easy to make plus it looks great in any number of fabric/color combinations.
Below you can see my original submission. (please excuse the somewhat fuzzy images). I submitted my concept before making the quilt and provided several alternative color examples as well. My preference was the yellow/aqua version with the large scale prints that you see on the first page. I think this color combo is cheerful and sunny. Plus I would love to see more examples of modern quilts using prints . . . especially large scale prints. Anyone with me?
The magazine chose the pink and gray version. Honestly it's probably my least favorite of the color combos I submitted but it's still a sweet little quilt.
I'd love to make a couple more in other colorways. It really is an easy quilt to throw together. Really. The circles are appliqued using fusible that results in a turned edge so everything is nice and finished. If you'd like to make your own version you can get the magazine here. They are also selling kits of the pink/gray version here.
This is a great issue stuffed full of lots of modern projects plus some good articles. I hope they'll continue to publish these special issues each year now that QuiltCon will be a yearly event.
Maybe next time you'll try submitting an idea. Seriously . . . go for it! : )
I really love this quilt! So excited you were published in this edition. I roomed with a star at QuiltCon!ReplyDelete
I agree with your thoughts on modern quilts using large scale prints, bright ones at that!ReplyDelete
I love your yellow and aqua - just my sort of quilt.
Anne, I agree with you, I like large prints. A lot! The first quilt would have been fabulous, too! Although I love the gray and pink combo :) Is the quilting free hand, or a decorative stitch on your machine? It's so playful and fun :)ReplyDelete
