Going Modern

The quilting world is definitely moving toward modern quilts. Here are four client quilts I quilted recently that are modern.

The first is made by Peggy--a lattice quilt made in solid grey and white. Very striking!

She requested "Bauhaus" edge-to-edge design, which goes great with modern.

The next three are all Mary's quilts. The first is a table runner, an adaptation of a Beyond The Reef quilt pattern,  Floats.

I did freehand swirls across the length:

Next is a halloween table center, made from a charm pack.

I did an edge-to-edge on this one--"Slick":

And her third quilt is this adorable table center made from a candy pack, 2 1/2" squares. The line is "Flow", by Zen Chic.

I quilted freehand peacock feathers across the top, one of my favorite freehand designs to stitch:

Grace and peace!


  1. Love the Bauhaus quilting, definitely modern :)

    1. Thank you, Celtic Thistle! Modern is the bomb in quilting right now. Love your blog!

  2. These are all great quilts. I love that you showed great closeup shots of your quilting. The freehand swirls would be great for a project I have in the queue. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Thank you, Sarah! I love doing those freehand swirls! You will, too!
