Quilt #6: A Modern Scrap Quilt

I’ve been busy quilting away and super excited to share this one with you.  This is a customer quilt that I recently finished that will be a Christmas gift, so I promised not to disclose the name of the customer to keep the secret.

I absolutely loved studying all of the scraps lovingly pieced together and showcased in this beauty.

This is the largest quilt to be loaded on my longarm, and I used almost every inch of the 12 feet to pull it off.  I learned quite a lot from this project.  Since it was a modern design, I got to try out some geometric quilting in the outside border, some waves in the blue, and a curvy zig zag in the green. The funky curves were so much fun to quilt!

Isn’t the electric blue just stunning?  I think so!

I went with an arrow motif for the body of the quilt.  I didn’t get photos of the back, which was pieced as well.  The arrows really stand out on the back as well.

Each block is cool, but I thought I’d share a few of my favorites.  I just loved this fish.

 I’m super envious of the fabric collection that contributed to this beauty.

The tigers were another favorite of mine.

 It was so big, I couldn’t get a picture of the whole thing, but I just had to share what I could.

It is based on a pattern by Helene Knott of Oregon City.  I’m thinking when I build my fabric collection large enough to pull this off, this is a quilt I just might make for myself someday!
