Linda of Koka Quilts asked me to quilt her Modern Building Block quilt.
This is a very interesting quilt with lots of different sized blocks. See those two very large blocks? They are 36” x 36”. Almost a small quilt all on their own.
I wanted to keep the quilting in the “modern” style. Lots of straight lines and ruler work. The quilt whispered to me though, and it whispered “feathers, I want some feathers”. So some feathers it got. Not too traditional, more of a modern, simple clean look. Each block is quilted differently.
The smallest blocks in this quilt finish at 6” x 6”. This added another challenge of scale to the quilting process.
This was my favourite block in the quilt:
I don’t know if it is linen but it certainly has a linen like texture. Linda belongs to the Monday Modern Quilt group. They will be holding an exhibition 19-27th September at Alberton House in Mt Albert. Linda is hoping to have this quilt ready for display. So if you want to see this quilt up close and personal keep checking Linda’s blog as I am sure she will have more details available.
Linda, thank you for sending your quilt to my quilt beauty spa.
