Progress on the Supernova Quilt

 Only eleven more days until all three of the boys are back in school.  It's been slow going on the Supernova quilt, but I've made a little progress.  Here's a peek of the project box.  All pieces have been cut.  Most of the fabrics are batiks.


I made eight little yellow and black triangle squares.  So cute!

 They became triangle sections with the addition of black and pink triangles.

Lots of triangles, dancing across the design wall!

 A few more triangles added to get to this stage.

And, I ended with these pieces; almost enough to finish the first few blocks.
It's a start!

Thanks so much for reading!  

Be creative ~ sew something today,

Quadrille Quilt

Today I'm showing the Quadrille quilt.  This quilt features big, 16" blocks, and a gorgeously bright, modern fabric palette.

Quilt Stats:
Quilt Size:  78-3/8" x 101"
Block Size:  16" x 16'
Fabric:  Spectrum by V & Co. for Moda
Batting:  Warm 100 by the Warm Company
Thread:  King Tut by Superior
  
This is Block A.  It has a fun 3D look to it, due to the color value placement of the fabrics.  
The Spectrum fabric collection lends a playful, geometric look to this design.

Block B really showcases the turquoise blue triangle fabric.  It looks almost like a cut gemstone, set in the center of the block.

Block C is just a different color version of Block B.  The cutting and piecing is all the same, it's just a little bit toned down to complement the other two blocks in the quilt.

The blocks are set on point, and finished with side and corner triangles that match Block C's coloring.  A simple double border of pink and gray completes the look of the Quadrille quilt.  
If you would like to sew your own Quadrille quilt, the pattern is available in the new Modern Quilts Unlimited, issue #20, available at your local quilt shop today.  You can also order a copy online, here:  Modern Quilts Unlimited, Issue 20

 If you sew a Quadrille quilt, or any of my other patterns, please send me a photo.  I would love to see it!
