Modern Plus Sampler {Pieced Top}

I have really loved participating in the Modern Plus Sampler quilt along hosted by my friends Cheryl (Meadow Mist Designs) and Paige (Quilted Blooms) this year, and I am thrilled to be able to say I have my quilt top pieced together.

I would have loved to get a better photograph of the quilt top, but my design wall is just a touch too small and the main background fabric, Kaffe Fassett Shot Cotton in Pudding, is just a bit too delicate for me to figure out a more creative option than laying it flat on my living room floor.

I love the applique blocks in the quilt top. I’ve actually been doing a lot more applique for projects lately. I know Paige will be thrilled to know she’s had a heavy hand in convincing me to embrace it as a technique!

I always look forward to the parade of finished at the end of one of Cheryl’s quilt alongs. The reveal parade will take place on April 4th, so I snuck in my finish just in time!

    Pudding…what a great name for a fabric color! I like that you used it as a background, it really pulls everything together. Looking forward to seeing the parade!

    It’s a beautiful finish! Love the colors you choose for this one. Shot Cottons are delicate and can very easily become distorted, but it sure is the perfect background color!

  9. Wow, it’s a wonderful finish Yvonne. Man, you are getting through a ton of stuff in both quilting and real life!

    It looks great. Love the colours. I finished mine over the weekend. I had to send an so-so photo to Cheryl. Even though we have more daylight, it’s still hard to get decent photos.

  17. Your sampler is wonderful! I love the colors you used. Thank you so much for taking part in the quilt along!

    Congrats on the finish. I really like your use of color on this one, it makes for a very dramatic quilt.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
