Last Friday I shared my Goldenrod Pyramids quilt I made for Spring Market, and today I am sharing my second secret sewing project for my good friends at Moda Fabrics ;) And I am so excited!!! It's not as often that I go totally traditional in my quilts, and so this was a fun way to shake things up. It's called Journal and isn't it just so pretty!!!!
The fabric in this quilt is called Memoirs by 3 Sisters. And again, it won't be in stores till November, but it is totally worth the wait. I just love the classic colors of this quilt, and the prints are full of beautiful floral creations and budding vines!!! And there is even some script text thrown in too, which I just love!!!
The design was done by Carrie Nelson and of course, you know how much I love piecing stars!!! This quilt obviously has quite a bit of piecing in it, but it really was so much fun to put together. All of those happy points just make me smile ;) And I loved making the giant HST border, I will have to remember that, because ya 7" HST's are so fun and easy to trim and look awesome!!!
And when it came time to quilt it, I went for fast and beautiful which lately has equaled the all over loose feather design. 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. Just so great!!! Can't get more classic of a finish then feathers, perfect for a classic quilt!!!
This quilt was also hanging at market, and I got a peek of it in a video that Carrie filmed in the Moda Booth, but I never saw a picture of it so I can't share that here. But it looked so pretty hanging with all of the Memoirs quilts ;) It finishes at 72" x 72" so it is a great size to lay out on with a book.
And that is my Journal Quilt and I am so grateful that I got to make it up ;) I really did enjoy using a more traditional fabric and shaking it up a bit. And such a pretty finish it made!!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!!
