The Modern Fabric Bug

Charlene has definitely been bitten by the modern fabric bug!  I do not have a picture of her entire quilt; time and space is always a factor.  We decided on diagonal rows of different flowers to fill in the background with lots of continuous curves in the linked star sashing.




This quilt had hundreds of pinwheels made from  half square triangles leftover  from an earlier project.  We decided to border them with a cute swirly leaf.



Gail has also been bitten by the modern fabric bug.  Her memory quilt is off to England for a relative suffering from memory loss.  It is filled with  old photo  of friends and relatives.  I hope this brings peace and comfort to the recipient.


We decided to quilt it with large freehand swirls woking their way around the pictures.



Daryl from Fabric Spark collaborated with Berene from Happy Sew Lucky to make this quilt for the opening of a bricks and mortar quilt shop in Toronto’s east end.  The shop is the joining of two online fabric shops,  Fabric Spark and Country Clothesline. If you haven’t been yet check them out — clean fresh and modern!


This quilt is being used as a sample for Berene’s curved piecing workshop.  Straight line quilting works well  for a fresh modern look and is easy to do if the top is perfectly square.

It is great for me to be a small part in the finishing all these fabulous quilts.
