I am excited to announce my latest design for Moda Bake Shop, that published on the Moda Bake Shop site late yesterday afternoon. This is the third design that the Moda Bake Shop has accepted. The fabrics are called Fern Hill designed by Jan Patek. The colors are similar values making a low volume quilt. It uses a jelly roll along with yardage of two of the Fern Hill fabrics, one for the windows and one for the backing and binding. I call it Garden Windows and the pattern is free on the Moda Bake Shop blog.
Visit the post Garden Windows on Moda Bake Shop to see the step by step construction and download a free pdf with the pattern. DH really liked it when he saw the finished quilt. There is a lot of movement within the quilt, as the eye moves around. The construction is really quite easy, just take a look at the pattern to see. It actually goes together really fast.
I made another one with higher contrast fabrics, just to show a variation. I’ll show you more of it soon, this is the piecing part, and I added a border. I have been working on quilting it using more custom designs than I have ever done before. I’ll show you some of those next time.
Do you like the low volume or the high contrast version?
