You guys may recognize the AUH-mazing quilt pictured above, that John
made. It just so happened that while I was visiting NC that the card alined & I was able to quilt it! John made this for the Modern Solids, Traditional Inspiration challenge hosted by FreeSpirit Fabrics and Denyse Schmidt & ended up winning the challenge.
Words cannot explain how unique & beautiful this piece is. It’s definitely one of the most fun quilts I’ve quilted & was a fresh reminder of why I love quilting modern quilts. The prints he threw in to set off all of the solids was the perfect touch.
John thought baptist fans would compliment the top well & I couldn’t have agreed better. With all of his bias work, set on point, I love how the fans look.
This was a hard quilt to part with, but I am so excited for John for not only winning the challenge, but also seeing it in Free Spirit & Denyse Schmidt’s booth at Quilt Market.
I wish I could have made it to market this year, all of the IG posts made me jealous of how much fun everyone was having! Hopefully next year!
