I'm so happy to finally be able to share a finished quilt with you today. Published in issue 5 of Make Modern Magazine this month, this is my second published pattern. It makes an 84" x 84" bed quilt using warm colours on a low volume background. It is inspired by the vintage London Roads block which is a 12" block with small arrows going around in a circle. I was reminded of that feeling of not knowing which direction to go and decided to point the arrows towards each other.
The second design intention was to make the arrows really big and scrappy. I chose red as the accent colour and pink, yellow and orange for the other arrows to keep it warm.
As this is the biggest quilt I've made to date and quilted on my home machine I kept it simple and used a meandering all over pattern. I find it really quick to do and it took me three evenings to quilt up this baby!
So there you have it, my secret project that has taken up quite a bit of February and March finally shared. I love how it looks in the spare room here but guess who nabbed it to cover her sofa? Yup, mum made off with it as soon as I had the photographs taken! To be fair she did help with holding up the background stand!
There are 14 projects in this month's Make Modern with the cutest cat made in a geometric style that I am itching to try. There are also interviews with Cotton + Steel and Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr. It's available to buy here for 6.95 Australian dollars, about 5 Euro so great value for a quilting mag!
Linking up to the Friday Finishes!
