The Patio Quilt. I loved making this quilt! Everything about it was enjoyable. The fabrics are bright and cheery. The batting quilted like butter. The swirly quilting came out well. It was allover one of my best quilting experiences.
Here's a shot of it on my bed. It is a large quilt, 82-1/2" x 90-1/2". It's tough to take a picture of a quilt this size. I used the Moda Fabrics
Bloomin' Fresh by Deb Strain collection, and a few fabrics from the Moda Marbles collection, too.
The pattern for the Patio quilt appears in the just released Summer 2014 issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine
. They did an excellent job of presenting this quilt.
One of my favorite parts of this quilt is the way the corners of the blocks come together. It looks complicated, but it's really very simple, straightforward piecing.

Swirly quilting! I love stitching swirlies.
thread. I used several colors, but I only have a pic of this one...Hmmmm....

This quilt was so much fun that I used this yellow polka dot fabric for the label instead of my usual plain muslin.
