My Modern quilting...

First, I forgot to show you what I made for my partner in the brown bag challenge. This pillow is a smaller version of one by Barbara Brandeburg in Quilting For Joy. I was given the purple and the striped fabric in the border.
It's been a week to stay indoors here, so I've been working on doing some modern quilt designs. The look is different than what I've been doing for so long and it's a little bit of a challenge for me - a fun one at that. This is "Small Plates" from The Practical Guide to Patchwork. Simple blocks using Modern Meadow. My first attempt had no white, but I scrapped that idea for the solid white around the alternate blocks. I love how it turned out.
And I got all the piecing done for my Zig Zag quilt. In fact got a little start on the quilting today.
Some times a little bad weather can be a good thing!


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
