This is part of a series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. This month, I made a neon version of the Honey Quilt. You can see my earlier post about it here.
I had all kinds of plans for photographing this finished quilt, some of which may have involved a black light, but I ended up finishing it just in time to meet my shipping deadline, so I had to settle for a quick photo shoot complete with a lot of dead leaves. (Why all the dead leaves at this time of year?!)
I'm a big fan of sparkle and shine, but I've been slow to get on board the sparkly fabric trend. I love a challenge though, so when I started seeing Michael Miller's Mirror Ball Dot fabric pop up in my local shops, I thought it was a good time to give it a try.
I mentioned the other day that my friends had been pushing me to finish the pattern for the Sewing Circle Tote. This is another pattern that I've been asked to publish, and I'm happy to say that both the Iron Cozy and the Sewing Circle Tote patterns will be available on Monday, April 1.
This is part of a series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. This month, I'm making a variation on the Fire Drill quilt.
Last week, I talked about my plan for making a "back-as-front" version of my Fire Drill quilt. The quilt top I ended up making is still based on the back of Fire Drill, but I switched things up a little bit (including going with a white background instead of the linen I had planned to use).
I finished a couple of samples this morning and I like them so much that I had a hard time leaving them at Modern Domestic!
I'll be teaching a text quilts workshop there this Spring that will cover two methods of adding letters to your quilt projects. I'll post again when I have exact dates for my upcoming classes but, in the meantime, I just couldn't wait to share photos of these pillows! You can read about the classes here.
