I have two modern projects I recently finished for our home. First up is this strip quilt which now hangs in our family room. I recently took down the country wallpaper border and chair rail and repainted in a light beige gray. So of course it had to have a new quilt wall hanging :-) I modified the pattern to fit my quilt rack. The pattern is in a book called Modern Minimal by Alissa Haight Carlton. An all solid quilt for me with lots of fun quilting designs which I did on my Nolting Funquilter :-) I used Glide thread on top and SoFine in the bobbin with Hobbs 80/20 batting. My quilting designs are from Jodi's book Modern Simplicity, Judi's blog and various other pictures I have seen on the net. Click on the pic's to enlarge if you want to see really close up!
And over the weekend I got these 4 placemats quilted and bound. I have had them pieced for close to a year and it was a free pattern. I had fun with these designs too, I know it is crazy to quilt a placemat so much but hey did I mention it was fun, LOL And just look how great it looks with my dishes-Yikes I love it!! I have four more I want to do up soon too, but first a customer quilt needs quilting today.
The designs for these were from the same sources I mentioned above.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's post of patriotic quilting!
