Modern quilt by you.
This is one of my very first quilts. I quilted it at StoryQuiilts in Beaverton before I got my own machine. Its a 3-D Bow Tie in batiks. I staggered the rows so it looked kinda like a tile pattern.
I love its color and how it feels. Sometimes I think it's my best work to date. When my husband was sick and I had to take him to the ER ... I took this quilt and unpicked a bunch of bad quilting and tucks. This quilt was a good friend to me that day.

wow! Thanks for all the nice comments! I thought it was SO modern when I made it, and so Easy too.
Now I still just really like it and feel a great deal of connection to it.
Every one of you is so sweet to comment and say such nice things.

Love the bright red accents. The fact that the quilt comforted you and kept you busy while your husband was in the hospital makes it a treasure.
