Modern Bliss Quilt

I’ve been hard at work recently trying to whip out a sample for the shop.

It all started a couple weekends ago when I saw the Modern Bliss line in Vintage by Andie Hanna for Robert Kaufman at the shop when I was in working. I tried to fight the temptation of buying some the entire day; channeling that urge into making a couple of these lovely fat quarter bundles we call “Twinklers” at the shop.

Too bad that didn’t work…it just made me love them more! So I grabbed a pattern off our pattern wall called “Trifecta” by Mountainpeek Creations, gathered the fabrics required and got to it! This is the assortment I brought home…

I added a couple solids to the collection, along with a small yellow print (that was actually from a thirties reproduction line) that I thought added character.

It didn’t take me long to put together. The directions were really clear and it went together quickly with all the large pieces and strips. I think that center piece shows off that floral print so well. And I just love the large chevron on the sides. What a great pattern to showcase large print like this. I also added a small pink/peach flange to the inner border. I just felt like it needed a little bit more softness out in the border.

Jody at the shop also did some lovely machine quilting for me too. I picked a floral pattern that sort of mimicked some of the large flowers in the yellow floral print. I was even more in love with it quilted than before I handed it over to her to begin with. I love that feeling…

And in all that excitement — I forgot to take a picture of the finished product while I still had it at home. Sorry for the kind of clumsy picture. The quilt had to migrate back to the shop to go on display with the fabrics, so I had to have Jody help me hold it up to photograph it as best she could in the front of the shop. Did I mention how big this thing was?! Crazy big!!

I’ve been trying to step out of the box a little bit more recently and try some more “modern” quilting. I know this isn’t exactly super modern, but with the gray/neutral fabrics and the non-traditional pieced center, I think this is moving in a direction toward modern that I feel safe with right now. Haha!
