blogger’s quilt festival fall 2015: modern quilt entry

The Blogger’s Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy’s Creative Side, is in full effect, so it’s time to throw my hat quilt in the ring!

I made this quilt as part of the RJR Fabrics What Shade Are You blog hop, and it might be my favorite finish to date.

I went with a combination of squares, HSTs and 4-patches to create the pattern. I’m rubbish at coming up with names, so this one is still “untitled” (like most of my quilts). Depending on how I look at it, I see open envelopes, or modern fortune cookies.

The richly-colored Cotton Supreme Solids I used for the project were a delight to work with. I took all of the leftover scraps I couldn’t bear to see go to waste and did an improve panel to add some interest to the back. I think I love it as much as the front!

The quilt is bound with Netorious in black from Cotton + Steel and quilted with a beautiful grey Aurifil 50wt.
