Kona Modern Quilts Baby Modern
It's a wrap! I finished Modern Baby the other evening and popped it up on the barn wall yesterday after work for some quick pictures. I used my half yard of Cynthia Frenette's Kona Modern Quilts for Robert Kaufman that I took home for a guild challenge. The challenge was to make something using the fabric and any other prints from the line or any Kona solids but no other fabric. I stewed and I waffled. Then I stewed and waffled some more and then I finally chopped up the half yard into 5" squares and the rest just followed.
I used Kona Artichoke, Ash, Coal, Ruby and Sunflower! I quite love it. I used a light variegated grey 50 wt Aurifil for the quilting. I quilted straight lines, vertically only. Snazzy!!!!!!
The back has wide stripes of the solids. Scrappy binding using the same solids and the whole quilt finishes at about 45" by 54".
