My friend, and quilter, Jeanette has been developing quilt patterns. She let me test her first one called Modern Granny. Jeanette has the first one I made, and the second test went to my nephew for Christmas. I think the pattern lends itself to some fussy cutting for a featured center square, like a Vikings emblem, or a favorite college sports team. I didn’t want to post a picture until she had released the pattern, but it is now available on her etsy shop.
Jeanette did the quilting, of course, and used footballs and helmets in her all over design! So clever!
Hope Zach enjoys it this football season! I’m told it is Copper (his dog) approved, so I think that is a good thing.
I finished the quilt for the youth group fundraiser! I used the same pattern that Kim and I created, with a few changes, again.
I’m liking it in these red, blue, and tan colors as well! Next time I would do something different than the broken dishes blocks (probably bow ties). The row was added to give the quilt some length. Jeanette used an all over pattern for the quilting that I think works perfectly for this style of quilt.
Now I am working on a yellow and white quilt for the Abilene quilt show in June. Hopefully I am giving Jeanette enough time to do the quilting! Graduation is in two weeks then hopefully will have more time to get Manchester by the Sea BOM finished, before the next Block Of the Month from them starts!
