Modern Building Blocks- top is done!

2.05.2015

It took some creative effort to get a picture of this one. A step ladder may have been involved. ;-) I would rather have taken an outside photo, but a step ladder in a foot of snow would have made me look sillier than I already am. My neighbors talk enough already. 


I have to give credit where credit is due. When I told my hubby I was going to write words in place of many of the 6" blocks in the Modern Building Blocks pattern, he came up with most of them. I guess he loves me. =) 

The letters are Just My Type by Quiet Play and can be found on Payhip. She has a lot of super cute paper pieced patterns. =) The hearts are by Cluck Cluck Sew. I want to make more of them because they are just so cute! 

When I get this big lady quilted, it will be on our bed. =) 

In anticipation of Lori Holt's new book coming out, Farm Girl Vintage, and needing a backing for this quilt (which was made with all Lori Holt fabric) I made a trip to a local quilt shop that carries a lot of her fabric. 


Sorry for the poor quality picture...All the fabric on the right are Lori Holt's fabrics. The bottom two are for the back of the Modern Building Block quilt. That's the plan, at least. While I am sharing the picture, the house fabric on the left is going to be used somehow in the Sew Sweet Bee house quilt my bee sisters are making for me. The stove fabric was a "just because it's cute" purchase, as was the sheep fabric. And I can never turn away from a great text fabric. Just like that, my paycheck was gone, but what a fun way to go! 

Have a happy Thursday, everyone!!

  3. Your quilt is so beautiful! I think the colors are so happy and didn't realize that all of the fabric was from Lori's lines. I zoomed in and noticed all the familiar prints. The words that you substituted are so sweet and personalized. If there were a contest for this pattern, I'm sure you would take first prize!!!

  5. It's so wonderful the way you incorporated the names & words in your quilt. It's lovely. Also let the neighbors talk cause this would have looked MAGNIFICENT against the snow (I know, there's ~3' outside for me today) plus what are they gonna say "The crazy quilt lady's at it again" they're just jealous how warm you are bundled under all those quilts! :)

  11. Your quilt is beautiful! And how special to customize it. I love that Russ came up with most of the text. Just in case you don't already know it, he's a keeper! :) But somehow I don't think that's news to you.
