if you are tired of piecing only simple strips or squares together and seeking for a project which is a little more intermediate and gives you a stunning quilt – then Modabakeshop has for sure the right thing for you. Today you’ll find a new quilt tutorial featuring the Juggling Summer fabric line.

Juggling Summer Quilt, Zen Chic

This is a cool block pattern isn’t it?

It’s designed from Jo’s Country Junction for Regan, the best friend of Jo’s daughter Kalissa. Hey, I can imagine how much pride Regan will feel to get this quilt.
