Project Modern challenge

Nothing like the last minute, I finished my Project Modern challenge quilt, got some rainy day pictures (what a shock) and submitted it! This round's challenge was to make a monochromatic quilt. I'm pretty happy with how this came out, and can't wait to wash and dry it.

I used a Kona fat quarter bundle I got for Christmas and added in pops of an Anna Maria Horner print from the Innocent Crush line. I also used Innocent Crush for the binding. I did my binding a little differently this time and machine stitched it on. I have mixed feelings about machine binding, but I did love how quickly it worked up! I quilted it with diagonal lines in alternating light and dark purple thread and did some hand stitching around one diamond to balance out the placement of the printed diamonds.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Ohmygosh Meaghan! I am SO obsessed with this quilt. This is SO gorgeous! WOW! You may have just converted me to using more solids.

  2. Looks beautiful, Meaghan! I love the hand quilting on the one diamond - what a great detail.

  3. Congratulations on your site! It really is great and as I saw in the first positions it is true that sharing and interface of the site are really a boon for work style. Really a big thank you!
