Stacks from Modern Quilts Illustrated

My rule of thumb is that if there’s one quilt in a magazine that really I think I’m going to make, I’m happy.  I got a copy of Modern Quilts Illustrated issue 1 by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr.  I’m a fan.

I was motivated enough paging through to churn out “Stacks” the first of the three quilts in this issue. You got a sneak peak of it in the previous post with Murphy sitting on the quilt top. I managed to drag the top out from under Murphy to quilt and bind it yesterday. And as you can see….Murphy is back on top.Stacks with Murphy I lured him back into the house with a treat and took these shots sans dog.

You’re welcome.Stacks Quilt I made my version with natural linen for the ground and various scraps of green fabrics for the zig zag part. (See if you can find where I forgot to look at the layout and went my own way.)  And because quilts made without Minkee backing these days are preferred these days in this household by dogs and people alike, the backing is this fun daisy printed Minkee.

    Hi! You have made really beautiful quilt! I think your version is very good ending with more green. Beautiful colours and I love that simple pattern … I have to add this to my long list!
    All those lovely greens are wonderful with that natural linen! x Teje
    Ps. I saw very exiting puzzles in your earlier posts!
