Modern Basics II :: Sunrise

While I’m busy with some less exciting details of life, (taxes/sick kids/shipping quilts) I thought I would take the time to share a few details about the quilts in my book!  Modern Basics II has been on shelves nearly a month, and I’m looking forward to seeing how creative everyone else is with the patterns.

Modern Basics II :: Sunrise -

Sunrise measures 60″ x 72″

Designed and pieced by me with my Baby Lock Melody

Quilted by Natalia Bonner

Fabrics are by Dear Stella

Queen size option included in the book

This quilt is fun to make – even in the midst of a massive deadline!

I’ve sketched a few samples that I would love to have a chance to make:

Modern Basics II :: Sunrise -

Fabrics : Victorian Modern

Modern Basics II :: Sunrise -

Fabrics : Asbury

The quilt works together quickly with a quick stitch and flip – I saved my trimmed corners, but have yet to make them up into anything.  As usual, there’s some tips for completing this project with ease too!

Which one would you make?

I’ll be back tomorrow with another quilt from Modern Basics II!


Available on Amazon and in my bookshop!

    It’s pretty! I think it would be great scrappy.

    I would go with the brighter one – it reminds me of lovely Spanish or Moroccan tiles :-)
