Thanks so much for following along this week! This is the last of four posts and we'll start with a photo of my Looptastic quilt. Looptastic is made with patchwork rings that are appliqued onto the quilt top. Looptastic and Owl eyes are the only two quilts in the book that use applique, but they each use slightly different machine applique techniques.
When I was planning this quilt, I was mildly obsessed with the idea of including prints with white backgrounds and white binding with a pale gray background and I love how the chartreuse and teal ended up looking with it.
Each of the quilts in Modern Patchwork is accompanied by two mini quilts showing alternate fabric choices and quilting designs. I'd like to show you the ones that go with Looptastic.
Here's the "make it with coordinates" version. Instead of colorblocking, like I did on the main quilt, I combined some warm solids with prints from Lizzy House's 1001 Peeps collection. Because the segments of each ring are made with templates, it was easy to fussy-cut some of the picture prints.
This is the "make it scrappy" version. There are all kinds of directions you could go with a scrappy version of this quilt. In this case, I used a Kona charm pack, plus a few scraps to make color wheel rings. I included a white space in each ring - just to break things up and add some interest.
Roller Rink is another one that lends itself to lots of fabulous scrappy options.
Okay, so here's the last chance to win a prize package.
Today's prize package includes a copy of Modern Patchwork, templates for the Looptastic quilt (there are 9 templates for this one, so this is a great set to have!) from Jill at Tabslot, and 3 Kona Solid fat eighth bundles inspired by the Roller Rink, Looptastic, and Honey quilts.
Roller Rink bundle includes: Kona Ruby, Rich Red, Poppy, tomato, Coral, Salmon, Snow, and Chocolate.
Looptastic bundle includes: Kona White, Ash, Jade Green, Carribean, Emerald, Peapod, Cactus, and Zucchini.
