Garden Gradation goes modern! I was inspired my my students in my last Garden Gradation class because they were modifying my pattern in various ways. And I thought, I should try that too! Old dog, new tricks! Woof. Anyway, I pulled these fabrics out of my stash (can you believe that?) and came up with this really modern version of Garden Gradation quilt. Then on the back I used a solid gray fabric. I went a little crazy with the quilting. Duh! That’s the way I am!
I hope you make one too! My next class for Garden Gradation is Sunday, September 29th from 9:30 am – 4 pm at Our Sewing Room in Springfield. I hope you will join us! Class fee is $40 and that includes my pattern. To sign up you can either call Our Sewing Room at 541-225-4857 or use my website shopping cart.
Kathy T. has done it again! Another beautiful quilt. And I had a lot of fun with the quilting. The waves seemed to flow, so I wanted to make the quilting do the same thing. I especially like the border treatment I came up with which is a thicker vein, and then curves going in different directions on one side than the other. And of course there are added “splashes” in the white areas coming out from the waves!
This beauty of a modern quilt by Gerry B. certainly takes the cake. She used all sorts of crazy fabrics (I love that!) and set them all on a gray background. Gray is the new black! Or the new white! Not sure which, but all I know is I love gray. And the gray really makes the colors pop on this quilt.
Attention Scrapalicious Class people – this quilt would work if your scraps are big enough!
Hey, I did say cake. Anyone making one? Wanna share? (German Chocolate is my fav!)
Joyce W. created this very fun New York Minute quilt. She modified it a bit to make it wider and it looks great. Using Taffeta and Berry Wine threads, I stitched all sorts of fun patterns in various areas.
