Modern Black and Yellow Quilt in the making

Getting all the flying geese units

onto the border, for this Modern

Geometric Quilt. Black Yellow and Gray.

I started this one planning to do a different pattern.

after getting most of the parts made,

 

I layed it out and didnt care for that pattern with these particular colors.

Sooo as with a lot of quilts~~~~

you improvise and sometimes you end up with

something a lot better.

One of the things I like about making

quilts. Sometimes you get a happy accident.

I will be getting the top and bottom borders on soon.

Lots of open space in this one for some fun quilting.

Ohio Star Quilt is finished! Handmade Quilts for sale

Im so Excited this quilt got the finishing touches this week and is on its way to its home!

The Quilting on this one really softened the pattern to the eye. When I first started it basic blocks seemed very striking, and with the nice sharp contrast between the Primary Colors that were chosen by the customer, up against the bright white was really sharp. With the quilting it softened it. In the end it turned out beautiful!quilts for sale

This quilt has classic Stippling Meander style quilting, A multi colored binded finished edge.

I kept thinking as I made it, I have to wash these colors, and the worry about color running. BUT thats the beauty of custom made. I pre washed all these fabrics before I made it. So it washed up after wards amazing. Bright whites and sharp colors. Whew!!!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Using quality fabrics has a lot to do with it also. Nice fabrics dont let color go as much as a lesser quality fabric would have. I have no fear to put dark and light colors together, if done right, it can be done. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was proud to ship out this beauty ๐Ÿ™‚

Mini Quilt

This one might be super cute. This one starts from Blocks and parts from the Original quilt. Itย  was aย  border Idea, that I decided not to go with On my Primary Star Quilt.ย ย 

King/Queen Quilts

I went with a better border , for that quilt.

So, now I have this 4 patch cluster of blocks to work with

I made quite a few before I decided… ha~~ cause thats what i do ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyhoo, thinking about tricking out a cool border for it.

Will focus on it being a “mini” for now, but its already pretty big. We will See~

What will become of this mini? ๐Ÿ™‚
