We love how it turned out. Hope you do too!
|Lunch Boxes pattern from Modern Quilt Relish|
The yellow and gray quilt on the cover features a brand new line of fabric from Benartex. It is called What's the Buzz from the Kanvas designers. We used five sets of "opposite" fabrics in the blocks, a wonderful directional stripe as the background, and another print fabric that served as the "intersection" of the horizontal and vertical lines running through the quilt. Such cute names. Such cute fabric!!! This quilt will be in the Benartex booth at Quilt Market in Portland this month. Again thank you Benartex!
- Daisy Buzz, the opposite set of Yellow and Black, with Gray being the intersection fabric
|This one was a good|
it merges the gray
vertical with the
- Dotz, the opposite set of Black and Yellow
- Buzz Words, the opposite set of Black and White
- Flower Buzz, the opposite set of Gray and Yellow
- Buzzy Bee, the opposite set of Gray and Yellow
- Styx, as the background in white
- There are also solids in gray and yellow from Benartex
In the yellow version we kept the darker fabrics of the opposite sets at the Lunch Box corners and the lighter fabrics in the Lunch Box middles. The dark blocks are on a light background. The dark solid runs vertically in this quilt and the lighter solid runs horizontally through the lighter Lunch Box middles.
The pattern makes four sizes; Table Runner, Baby, Child and Throw. It is written to take into account the incredible backgrounds you find that are directional fabrics. Hooray! If you don't want to use a variety of opposite sets the pattern is also written for all sizes using just one set of opposites as pictured in the Child size quilt on the cover.
We will begin shipping patterns Monday, May 13.
Next week we'll be discussing the fabrics in the Child size quilt, and why they were chosen. We always like to learn and teach from our own experimentation. Not to mention, give away patterns! Yep, pattern giveaway announced next week.
