Modern Quilt

Leah Day at Free-motion Quilting Project challanged us to construct and quilt a Modern Quilt. I love it!

This is the second part, mark, bast and quilt the Zen line.

This is a whole new thing for me and, even though my quilt lines are a little shakey and the echo line varies, I don’t think I did too bad. Now I get to go back and fill in the areas with additional quilting.


Modern Quilting Part 1

Last weeks Quilt Along with Leah Day is making Wonkie Blocks for a Modern Quilt. I used a selection of Ferns an Fossels from my stash and a sateen for the background.

I only have 3 blocks squared up so far. This week I need to finish squaring up the remaining 27 blocks, arrange them on my design wall, sew them together, draw a Zen line over the entire quilt, baste and and start quilting the first lines. Phew, I have a busy week ahead plus my sister-in-law is coming to visit.
