Blogger's Quilt Festival: Modern Quilts Part 2

I couldn't decide which of my recent modern quilts to enter in Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival Modern Quilts category. Lucky for me, she allows two entries!  

This is great-nephew Luc's 12th birthday quilt. It's a modification of Rob Appell's "curved piecing" technique. So easy!

The fabrics are from my extensive (cough) collection of solids. Luc wanted yellows and oranges, and no prints in his quilt.

He loves lions, so the backing is a lion print.

Thank you, Amy, for hosting!

Blogger's Quilt Festival: Modern Quilts

Every year, I look at Amy's "Blogger's Quilt Festival" on Amy's Creative Side and swear "next year I'm going to enter!"

Guess what? It's next year! And I have a fun quilt to enter in the Modern Quilts category.

This is "Crow in the Wheatfield." The spectacularly bright yellow is Kona's "Color of the Year," "Highlight." Remember the very first yellow highlighter pens? It's that yellow!  I'm so lucky to have a great boss at Ruth's Stitchery, who is willing to buy a fabric for the shop just because the staff likes it!

The 'crow' is Hoffman's black batik -- with just the slighted bits of navy blue, just like a crow's wing.

The pattern is adapted from Tula Pink's Houndstooth Check pattern. It's quilted in my favorite "Modern Figure Eight" design.

Go take a look!
