Modern Fans Quilt

I have a new finished quilt to share today!

This one has been in the works for a while - not difficult - but a little time consuming with all the curved piecing. The pattern is Modern Fans from Suzy Quilts.

There are several variations of the design in the pattern. They're all very similar and this one is the "Calm Lagoon" version which uses blocks 1 and 3.

Suzy hosted a Sew Along on her website and has many helpful posts for the curved piecing and the trimming.

I had a hard time coming up with a quilting design for this one, typical for me. Circles would have been a great choice, but it seemed too obvious. I went with a simple stipple in the background, back and forth lines on the circles and echoes in the back curved diamond shapes.

The batting is Hobbs Silk. I won it in an online giveaway and it was my first time trying it. It's definitely nice and light and shows off the quilting well as it has a bit more puffiness than my usual cotton. The back is a lawn from Bonnie and Camille's recent line "Little Snippets".

Happy to add this one to my finished quilt inventory!
