Susan’s fabric and the modern quilt challenge

Our small modern quilt group challenged us to make a modern quilt using different fabrics than we were used to using. My sister Susan gave me a bundle of solid fabrics so thought that I would use them to tackle this challenge.

I could not resist throwing in a printed fabric. I think if I had put another piece of the orange fabric on the other side of the quilt somewhere it would balanced it better, as it is it looks to me a bit unbalanced. No matter, its very soft and I am happy to have had a go at this kind of patchwork, I am thinking of doing another one soon.

I quilted whole quilt with loads of different fun designs framed to look like layers and as it is nearly Halloween I quilted a spider web or two.

I put a nice big bright star on the back to make the quilt reversible so you can use it anyway you like depending on your mood. I really like the blues they are so cheerful.

I had a lot of fun quilting this, mostly I made it up as I went along.
