I’m missing Modern Monday, so even though that quilt-along is over, I’m going to do Modern Monday anyway.  When I visited the Quilting Edge blog I fell in love with what Mari does and decided to follow her directions to make a quilt as you go.  Last year I started collecting striped fabrics.

Above, is a close-up.  This quilt as you go process was fun to try, especially creating the individual blocks.
Another close-up.  Attaching the blocks was a snap too.  Can you tell where the blocks were attached together?  As the quilt grew, I did have some difficulty attaching the long rows, especially the last row when the quilt was full size and heavy.  Maybe I'll use a lighter batting next time. 
Here it is on the back of my couch where I’m trying to brighten up this room with the beige walls and beige couch and beige carpet! I think it adds the color I'm looking for!
 And here is the full quilt.  I love how this quilt turned out.  Since I have plenty of striped fabrics left, I thought I’d use them to make some place mats or pillows.  Mari has some really nice tutorials so why don’t you give Modern a try.

 On Another Note:   Mark your calendar NOW!  Jodi Barrows, author and creator of the amazing Square in a Square technique, will lecture, demo and have a Trunk Show at the Attic Window Quilt Shop on Thursday, April 11th from 6-9 p.m. Call the Shop to reserve your seat as space is limited.  More info to follow in future posts.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!
