Bouncing Wedges

I have to thank Quilt Trends Magazine for doing such a great job styling my "Bouncing Wedges" quilt. The pattern for this quilt is in their summer issue which should be out soon.  The quilt is made with Dan Stiles Mod Squad fabric and some of the solids from the Birch Mod Basics.  Gotta love those solids!  They make those prints shine.
I made the quilt for Cynthia, of Birch Fabrics...actually I made two of them.  Both quilts are still with her in her shop.  I can't wait for them to come home again! Here are both color versions on display at Quilt Market in Kansas City.  I've been experimenting with lots of wedge based designs lately and I'm pretty happy with this one.
The quilting on both of these quilts is pretty intense and I think it adds so much to the design of the quilt.  Those lines are 1/4" apart.  Yikes!  Took me forever, but it was worth it.
I also love that Dan added this great bias stripe in his collecton.  You get the bias binding look without having to cut bias binding.  Gotta love that!
If you'd like my extra copy of Quilt Trends with the pattern for Bouncing Wedges, leave a comment today and I'll draw a winner Wednesday.
Comments are now closed...winner to be announced soon.

I love how you've combined stripes, prints, and solids so effectively -- I always have trouble with mixing fabric prints. These quilts are great examples!

SewLindaAnn said...

Your quilt design is great. It's so different!

Aimee said...

Love the design! You have major patience for doing that straight line quilting. I agree that it is worth it in the end, but it is soooo boring! : )

Lynn said...

The solids really set the stage for the fabric line in these quilts. Great job.
I'm also a sucker for a heavily quilted quilt.

Thanks so much for pointing out the easy way to make a bias-look binding - wish more designers would gift us with those prints :-) Thanks for the chance to win your extra copy and the pattern - it is a showstopper!

Great pattern! Simple, and modern, and a great way to showcase large scale prints. Wanting to make a quilt for my dad, and this would be a great pattern to use!

Dawn said...

Love the quilt design! I love the look of a bias stripe for binding, especially if I don't have to cut it. Thanks for the giveaway.

Annaliese said...

I can't believe I haven't see this quilt before- both versions are lovely! I'd love to make this one day.

Gill said...

I don't know this magazine at all so I'd love to win a copy!
I love your quilts - I can see why Cynthia is still hanging on to them!!!

Jenny said...

I shouldn't enter because I've just won goodies from you, but I LOVE this quilt and would be excited for this magazine! P.S. I do cut bias, but I love the look of straight striped binding, so I'm always looking for diagonals that will look perpendicular in the end!

Barbara said...

I love this quilt.

Debbie said...

Very fun quilts. Love seeing them side by side in different palettes.

Sharon said...

Great pattern and awesome fabric!

quilt for fun said...

Those Bouncing Wedges are wonderful and with the white background they really pop!

Dolores said...

Love your work. Thanks for the chance to win a copy of Quilt Trends.

Moriah said...

I totally dig the look of this quilt. It has a very retro vibe to it yet still looks super modern because if the fabric choices. Well done! Perhaps I should make one for myself...

Carol said...

Would really like a copy of the new book. The modern quilts (with their unique quilting) are really appealing to me. I rarely if ever use solid fabrics so this is really outside my box!

QuiltNut Creations said...

These quilts are so much fun; I love the quilting. Thanx for the chance.

LCP said...

I am curious as to which one comes home....the orange or green. For years, the lime green was my favorite add to all quilts and now I think it is orange. They are both gorgeous and I would love a copy of the pattern.

Marls said...

Love both colourways of the quilt. What a fantastic pattern. Would love the chance to win the magazine.

As usual, another great quilt design. Very inspirational. I just quilted concentric circles on a baby quilt. The circles were about 1/2" apart, so I hear your pain. I think it took me 7 hours to do a baby quilt!
