A Happy Modern Quilt

A Happy Modern Quilt

Hi Friends!  I was so thrilled to re- discover this happy little quilt that I finished in February of 2020, my last pre covid make.  Maybe that's why I find her such a happy, oblivious, little quilt... or maybe it's just the super fun and vibrant colors!


Connection Quilt

This was the prototype for my Connection Quilt Pattern and I ended up making several more with this design. 

Using up scraps for Connection Quilt blocks

It's so great for using up my scraps, which for me is one of the most satisfying things I do in my studio! You too?

I didn't give it a whole lot of thought, just starting pulling all the pretty colors of longish solids scraps I could find. 

Connection Quilt in the Snow

This quilt was super fun to make.  When I finished her up, we took her along on a wintry mountain getaway and got some fun photos.

Not long after that COVID hit, and this little beauty got packed away for safe keeping.  

Connection Quilt with Birthday Banner

What a joy to randomly discover her in a place that I don't usually store quilts (umm, not sure how that happened) and also to realize that I hadn't given her a proper wash and dry yet.  That is usually one of my favorite steps in completing a quilt... it's just so fun to see and feel that quilty crinkle.

Well needless to say, she's all prettied up and ready to find her forever home.  I couldn't resist getting some final photos of her after my daughter's recent birthday party.  This quilt just has a happy vibe..... like birthday confetti!  

Birthday Connection Quilt- Blooming Poppies

This Connection Quilt is 48" and was machine pieced and quilted by me on my home machine using 100% cotton fabrics and batting.  Both the finished quilt and the pattern can be found in my shop!
