Make it Modern

“Everything old is New Again”

I am in charge of “Display and Competition” at York Heritage Quilt Guild  in Toronto As part of my portfolio  I have to develop  challenges for  guild members.  The great thing about being in charge of things is you get to choose the topics that are relevant to you.

I chose the theme “Make it Modern”; the idea being that you must take your old fabric stash and give it a modern look.  This appealed  to me for several reasons, I have a lot of old stash that I cannot bear to give away and I am in a dilemma because I am really starting to love  modern quilts


I am proud to say I won a “Viewers Choice for my quilt and this is a  photo of it hanging  at Quilts at the Creek this past July.


This quilt is made entirely of old stash even the white background. It is the  background and the quilting that gives the old fabric a new modern look.

  1. I love your “Make it Modern”, Everything old is new again Quilt! Do you have a pattern of it for sale? While I took some close up photos of it at the Region of York Quilters Guild show, i am curious what size your triangles are. I am thinking it would go together like a ” One Block Wonder” quilt ( i have made several of those!) the triangles sewn together in a row by row fashion. It was just after I got home that I realized this would be the perfect pattern for my son & daughter in law’s quilt for their new home. Really enjoyed your trunk show & talk at our Guild.
