Okay, so I live in a desert playground. This area, Snow Canyon is just 20 minutes away from me. I decided I wanted to try the red rock backdrop for my newest quilt design. I am always so happy when I take the time to visit the incredible places around me.
Anyway, I give you - Just Call Me Modern? This is an original quilt design by me. I thought it would be fun to play on the whole "Modern" quilting thing. People have asked me what my quilting style is and I am not sure what category you would put me in. I love traditional piecing and I always will, but I love to add my own style to it. Isn't the backdrop just gorgeous?
I finished this quilt a few months ago, minus the binding. The plan was to save it for my second book idea, but really - I have been too impatient for that and realized it would be way more fun to come up with new ideas and release this pattern now.
The quilting was time intensive, but oh so worth it. The best part? It's all mine. I can not tell you how happy I am to have my own quilt exactly like I planned it and to keep it is even better.
Every block in this quilt was given its own special quilting treatment.
So the four-triangle squares in the middle of the quilt? Love.
I had so much fun taking pictures with my sister today - this picture is one she took and I absolutely love it. We only had one issue of the quilt being blown off the rock because of wind. But, thankfully it did not get too dirty.
I love the colors in the quilt and the red rocks are such a compliment to the quilt.
So the quilting on this quilt took me over 35 hours.
You can see why here. Best part of this pattern, as a bonus I will also be including the instructions on how to quilt this super cute square motif that is bouncing around in the quilt.
Here's what the whole quilt looks like. I just love it!
Quilting texture that makes my heart sing. Seriously, have I told you I love what I do?
I love the frame I created for the above block.
I still love it. I don't think I will get tired of looking at this quilt, ever!
So, I give you Just Call Me Modern? I am so happy with it. I hope you are too. I have it available as a pattern on my website for pre-order now. I will be shipping the paper patterns out around November 25 and that is when the PDF patterns will be available as well.
Thanks for letting me share this with you!
