A modern quilt for my bed

Recommended Posts

I call myself the 'cobbler with no shoes'  because I quilt for everyone else except me!  

So my goal was to make a quilt for our new house,   our new bed....

 

I wanted calm neutral colours reminding me of sand or pebbles.....I made this quilt  using the pattern "Sweet Garden" from Carolina Patchworks.    I was intending to make the entire king size with this pattern -  and I did.  Then I hated it, so I chopped 2/3s of the pattern off and added white for some neutral breathing space.  

 

Simple quilting in between the blocks.   

And then I got carried away in the white.   :rolleyes:  post-11183-0-03945600-1456339359_thumb.png[

What a beautiful quilt. I wish I could do work like that. I just do not have ideas in my head like most creative people. I have a Lenni and just the basic machine no computer or bliss table and have not been able to quilt real good yet. Maybe someday.

I love the large swirls in the negative space with all the accent work around them.  It looks wonderful, and I am sure it makes a large statement in your room.

May your threads be balanced, and your bobbin forever full….

Magnificent.  Meets all your goals, kicks it up a notch, and then quilting takes off like a rocket.  Fantastic!!!!
