This is the usual project of mine: long time in the making...:))) First blocks ('modern' part) were pieced in November 2016 (or even earlier), but I finished the whole top in late 2019. It was quilted in early 2020, right before sending it to LPQ. What a race! ;)
The sentence was figure out by me as some sort of my reaction to the discussion in the quilting community about what makes a modern quilt. Now I guess it is not up to date? 

The pattern is based on flying geese blocks, a bit alternated by adding some sort of a frame to each geese. This way I created the space for fussy cut words. One block is for the sentence/word start, the next for the ending and of course the third for everything in between.
It is very versatile design as you can place there any sentence you want - sky is the limit!

The most time-consuming part is fussy cutting the letters, the rest is just easy and fast (especially piecing the blocks and assembling the whole quilt top). Well, unless you are such a snail as I:)))

I used mostly solids mixed with some Carolyn Friedlander prints and some others prints that matched the colorstory.
The letters are fussy cut from Suzuko Koseki prints, actually 2 prints tops, but in different colors. Several letters are constructed from other letters as I run out of some of them (could you spy them without enlarging the photo?).

For binding I used some of the leftovers of two bias tapes which I had - just to create something interesting (one of the bias tapes has a crochet on the edge - a traditional twist to this bold quilt).

I really enjoying making this wall hanging and I'm glad that I chose so happy colourway.
I hope that LPQ readers will have so much fun as I have while making it!

  1. Bardzo ładna praca. Jest taka żywa i uśmiechnięta. Tak trzymaj!

  2. It is now obviously, that the new model of organizational activity provides to the wide circle (specialists) participating in forming of ideas on an exit from the folded situation.

  3. شركات تجديد اثاث كلاسيك تلعب دورًا مهمًا في الحفاظ على الأثاث القديم والثمين وإعادته إلى أفضل حالاته. يتميز الأثاث الكلاسيكي بأناقته وفخامته، وهو غالبًا مرتبط بالفترات الزمنية الماضية، مما يمنحه قيمة تاريخية وفنية كبيرة.
