I’m more than thrilled to hold the new issue of Modern Patchwork and see the Bouncing Balls wall hanger, made from my new line FOR YOU with MODA on the cover – yeah, it’s a cover girl!
The pattern uses a drunkard’s path block. It requires a layer cake and some solids. You will sew 36 blocks and each of the blocks uses one layer of the 42 fabric swatches of a layer cake (so you’ll have some left overs for a pillow). The large circles show the different fabric designs beautifully – don’t sew this quilt with just blenders, use your most favorite prints and let them show up. Since my fabric line has a wide variety of colors I could use that for my advantage and build a gradient from warm to cool. I filled the background of the circles with solids supporting this gradient.
By the way – since this spring I’m designer for a quilting motif company and create some quilting designs which you can buy online – either as a stencil or as a paper or digital pattern for a longarm machine. The loops in the circles and the scissors are both my motifs for www.quiltingcreations.com. You will find more of my quilt motifs like glasses or TVs there…
The magazine is now available at your newsstands. Enjoy!
