Well, with Spring Market all done now, I can share some of the secret sewing that I did earlier for my good friends at Moda Fabrics
;) Like most Market projects, this was one of those "get the fabric and turn it around right quick" kind of deals, and it's just one of two quilts I made, tee hee hee. And I know that sounds totally crazy that I would want to do that, but really it is so much fun for me ;) I love getting to be a little part of Market, and I am super happy to help out my wonderful friends at Moda
and to get to play with some of the new and upcoming fabrics :) So with that said, here is the first quilt I made for Spring Market 2019 and it's called Goldenrod Pyramids and isn't it just so great!!!
The fabric in this quilt is called Goldenrod and it is by One Canoe Two
. It won't be in stores till November, (Again, it is so fun to get to sew with these early :) but it is totally worth the wait. I just love the gorgeous colors in this line and the Prints are so fantastic!!! They are taken from Beth Snyder's paintings and in a word, stunning!!! I especially love the big Raleigh Rose Floral. And this quilt design really shows off those larger prints, which is doubly awesome!!!
The design was done by Carrie Nelson and uses 60 degree triangles. It really went together fast (which was good because the other quilt was a little more piecing intense ;) and was a whole lot of fun to sew. You just had to piece the smaller triangle blocks, and then sew the rows together. Simple, fast, and oh so much fun!!! And it is Fat Quarter Friendly :) I just love Fat Quarters!!!
And when it came time to quilt it, I decided all of those beautiful floral prints needed a beautiful quilting motif, so I went with the all over feathered swirl. I used 402 Pearl which always blends so nicely, even on the darker prints ;) And I love how all of the soft curves of the quilting offset all of the angles of the triangles. So pretty!!
And of course, with such a dense quilting design, it made for some incredible texture. Doesn't that just make you want to snuggle right up in this quilt and take a nap ;) The quilt finishes at 67" x 72" so it is a great size to do just that!!!
And I have to say, I was totally doing a little happy dance when Moda
posted this pic on Instagram of Goldenrod Pyramids hanging at market ;) Doesn't that just make you want to make this quilt!!!
I know it is on my list to make again for sure!!!
I am so grateful that I got to make this awesome Goldenrod Pyramids quilt and that I didn't have to keep it a secret for to long ;) Be sure to pop back in next week when I will share the other quilt I made for Market.
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!!
