Modern Peas & Carrots

Here is my latest quilt. I really love this one! I will be listing it in my Etsy shop today if you want to make it yours!! I will also have the pattern available by the end of the week - hopefully!! ;)

I am calling this Modern Peas & Carrots.
The fabric comes from the line Peas & Carrots that is a couple of years old. And a few other pieces I used to add to the orange variety! Which really gives the quilt that extra pop! In those orange areas I did these figure 8 sort of things when I quilted it.
I alternated using blue and green blocks, which I really loved! When I quilted it I did a swirl design (you might have seen upclose versions on Instagram). I became very good at those swirls!
I used Kona cotton in cream for the sashing. I quilted it with triple bubbles. Not sure how I feel about them, but they work well for the space they are in.
For the binding I looked for what seemed like forever to find something and everything I bought on line just was not right (now I have quite the stash of different kinds of orange!). But then the other day I was at JoAnn's and found the prefect one!
For the back I used some long measuring tape prints from the line on either side with the cream in the middle. I have never done something besides plain on the back of a quilt and I have to say I love it! My husband even commented on it, that he had not seen me do something like this before and he liked it too!
All folded with a back view.
Here it is all folded waiting to go to its new owner!
And just one more view of it because it is so pretty, and because my husband was so nice to hold it up for my on his lunch break in the wind while I tried to get a good picture!!
Again I hope to have the pattern for you by the end of the week, but if you want you can get this quilt here.


Pin It! \

  1. Very cool! I like the way the orange pops out on the blues and greens. And great quilting! I have many years to go to reach your level, or least many quilts.
