“Make it Modern” is the name of a quilt pattern that my good friend and fellow blogger, Corey, designed for the December/January issue of Quilt magazine.
I quilted this quilt awhile ago and I am so excited to finally get to share some pictures of it.
I am so in love with this quilt, I can’t hardly stand it! First of all, I love the sherbert-y colors and the all the yummy negative space. The quilt pattern isn’t complicated, but it’s striking…..just like all of Corey’s quilts. But what made this quilt so fun is that once I saw the quilt top, I could see exactly how it needed to be quilted. This may sound a little “new age” but the quilt top spoke to me and all I had to do was quilt it exactly like it wanted.
When I took it off of the machine, it looked exactly like I pictured it…..I love it when that happens (because it doesn’t happen all the time!).
I love to create secondary patterns with the quilting, it’s just another way to add interest to the quilt and it can really help move your eyes across the quilt top! But that doesn’t mean that it has to be difficult.
This quilt only has three quilting design: straight lines, back and forth lines and swirls….that’s it! It’s the alternating of the quilting designs that really sets it off.
Echoing the sides of the blocks helps separate the sections of the quilt even more really making them pop out.
And of course a picture of the back of the quilt……
Just look at that texture!!!
