Sew Sisters Quilt Shops has once again organized Blogathon Canada for our enjoyment! It starts today and I hope you will jump on over to their site to see the schedule of this weeks guest bloggers. Each day two bloggers will be sharing a list of great blogs in each of their provinces and have a special giveaway. I was very fortunate to host Manitoba last year and very happy to say that my good friend Lori at Night Owl Quilting and Dyeworks is the host for Manitoba this year. Her day is on Thursday and I plan on doing a special post to participate too! Now get on over the Sew Sisters blog and check out all the great blogs being shared today.
Now to what I have been working on. I just finished quilting Bonnies Modern quilt that she designed for her daughter, no pattern. She wanted simple, clean line quilting to keep with the Modern feel and with this being a large queens size quilt I kept the quilting designs light.
The back was pieced as well so I could be a reversible quilt as well.
I used a pantograph called Contempo for the large white and black side pieces and then did a spiral square in the center of the blocks. I added a back and forth design ( does this design have a name?) in the teal border and then simple straight lines in the outer black border. In the outer white border I added a loopy back and forth design ( that needs a name too.)
I was hoping to get some pictures of this quilt out on the ice but it has been so windy it was a losing battle to try to keep it flat. Hope this wind dies down soon as the windchill has been –25’c!!
