𝌭 Dorothy's Modern Quilt 𝌭

My friend, Dorothy, made this beauty of a modern quilt! It's not her usual style. She loves dots--check out her quilt here, the second one on that blog post. This quilt top was a kit given to her by her niece, who also bought one for herself while they were on clearance at Bear Patch Quilting.

First of all, about that beautiful fabric. It's digitally printed:

For quilting, Dorothy chose Fascination, a large swirly design that looks great with the graphic lines of this design:

I love these colors! You can see the quilting best on the solid areas:

Or does it go this way?! It's square, so it can be turned either way:

Dorothy found this fabulous batik of similar colors for the back:

  1. I can see why she wanted to highlight that focal fabric. It's fabulous! Bold, striking and beautiful quilt :)

  2. The pattern is very modern but using the large floral almost says traditional, what a great way to marry the two.

  3. This is a fun pattern, something different and so versatile. Funny, my maiden name is Schultz. I always perk up when I hear that name, but it's pretty common.

  4. That is very lovely - The colors are beautiful!

  5. Striking! I’m not a great lover of pink, but really like the dark stripes! Well done, Dorothy and Nancy!!

  6. The quilt is beautiful and the quilting is perfect!

  7. Very graphic, but the floral keeps it looking sweet too. Wonderful!

  8. Its a fun pattern and great with those fabrics. To me, it is more of a modern-traditional mix. I love the quilting pattern you choose - perfect.

  9. I love this quilt! It has beautiful fabrics and color. Great choice of quilting design. Where were the pictures taken? The staircase looks intriguing!
