Introducing my first finish of 2012, Easy Going Modern.
It's on the roster over at Patchwork Posse as a Workshop beginning February 2nd. Included in the $8 workshop cost is exclusive access to the pattern during the workshop, as well as support from me in the discussion forums, which are available only to workshop participants. I'll be including a Layer Cake variation as well as a bonus project for using scraps to make a pillow cover.
Easy Going Modern is a nice lap size quilt - 56" x 78" or so - perfect for snuggling on the couch. I quilted it with a really quick and easy wavy line that I did with my walking foot. Thread is Aurifil 50wt in a subtly variegated yellow.
This whole project is quick and easy - fabulous for a beginner, or for a more experienced quilter to whip up in a weekend. The back's layout mimics the front, but in larger scale:
My daughter gives it a big smile, and I'm absolutely thrilled with it, too.
I used Kona solids for the front: Carribbean, Curry and White. The back is Kona White and a print that is perfect for this quilt's recipients. It's bound in Kona White as well.
I'm happily linking up to Manic Monday, Sew Modern Monday and Fabric Tuesday (buttons over on my sidebar). Edited to add that I am also linking over at Quilt Matters' TGIFF linky.
EDITED again to add: I've been featured on Modern Day Quilts! Woot! Thank you, Heather!

Great pattern, Felicity! The eye is drawn all over the quilt and I keep picturing a little ball bouncing down the "steps". How exciting to be teaching a workshop about a quilt you designed!ReplyDelete
Wow to that quilt! Jessica at American Quilting just pinned it! Yeah!ReplyDelete
Lately, I've felt myself more and more drawn to quilts made up of solids only, and yours is another example why. Very nice!ReplyDelete
Simple yet very effective. Love it. And the enlarged version on the back is perfect. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!, Felicity! It's a wonderful quilt to share!ReplyDelete

I don't even think I would be able to do the wavy lines with my little Brother machine :(
I'm bound and determined to learn how though.
Great job! Congrats on being featured, what an honor! I love the simplicity of the quilt and yet I know that it has to be complicated with how well it lines up!ReplyDelete
