Urbanicity Fabric + Flatbread Pattern = Recipe for new Modern Quilt Relish Sample

 Marny here... a tasty recipe for a new Modern Quilt Relish Flatbread sample.
Begin with our Flatbread Pattern.  Then mix in some well designed fabric in four values.
Benartex Urbancity by Michele D'Amore.  Great fabric.  See the light, medium light, medium and dark.  Stone Texture Cream, Plaid Grey, Big Flower Black, and Scribbles Grey and Black

Look at April's awesome quilting--a great addition to the surface of the quilt.

Here is the completed Flatbread project, quilted and bound and ready to be seen!!

Speaking of binding, you might want to follow along below.  There is a fun tip at the end.

Our newest throw size sample of our pattern Flatbread trimmed and ready to bind.
2 1/2" strips cut for binding.
Strips joined with a diagonal seam.

Yards of strips joined needing trimming.

Timmed using quarter inch marking on ruler.

Press the diagonal seams open gently.

Press right sides together along the length of the binding.

Roll up the binding and put in a resealable bag to keep it under control while stitching it to your quilt top.  
Thank you to all of you that donated to Operation Kivu.  It is all so appreciated.  Hope you won prizes, I know you did good!


  1. Love your new quilt - I'm glad to see you using Urbanicity. Such a fantastic fabric line! I bought some earlier this Spring, but haven't found the right project for it yet.

  2. I just love this quilt! Clean and not complicated but interesting and fun to figure out how to make the blocks. AND I never thought about a plastic bag. I put my binding in a basket at my feet when I sew the binding.... clever!

  3. Love that fabric - I've got some myself that I plan to sew up soon. Love your binding tip. I've put clips on mine to hold it together, but your plastic baggie looks easier. Must try it. Thanks.
