Modular block quilt

I have recently finished a quilt for my daughter, it’s a double quilt that drapes generously over the sides of a double bed. The half square triangles and squares design is based on the Modular blocks quilt by Purl Soho and all the fabrics came from Tikki Patchwork before it sadly shut down.

The fabrics were all chosen by Miss T and I can’t recall who the designs are by. The backing fabric is brilliant, navy with blush, ivory and rose gold glitter. The triangles were made by placing 2 squares right sides together, drawing a line diagonally across and stitching 1/4 inch each side.

Miss T had seen a cute quilt label somewhere and asked me to make one, so while I was at work I used a Janome embroidery machine and made this – as my hand embroidery isn’t brilliant. So please with how it turned out, the quilting is very simple diagonal squares in a blush thread. The binding has bits of everything in the quilt and I love that look, works really well with the random design.

If you are interested in commissioning a quilt, be that in colours to coordinate with your interior, a baby quilt or memory quilt - do please email me at clothscissorsthread@gmail.com

Memory quilts can be made from baby clothes, t-shirts or general clothing and is a wonderful way to remember a special occasion, loved one or time in a person’s life.
