Modern Solids ~ Progress!

Fresh Lemons Quilts ~ Modern Solids by Denyse Schmidt

The month of September has been dedicated to my Denyse Schmidt Modern Solids challenge for Free Spirit Fabrics. I think I’ve put a little too much pressure on myself for this one and designed no less than 5 quilts, trying to come up with the perfect project.

In the end, I decided to stick with my original idea. You may remember these blocks? I’m using the solids from the Modern Solids Fat Quarter box and Free Spirit Designer Solids in Pearl for the background. I’ve been quite busy cutting and chain piecing, but I’m thrilled with how it is coming together. I can’t wait to share the final layout with you.

I have a couple prints from Denyse Schmidt’s Ansonia collection planned for the backing.

I’m hoping to have a very productive week at the machine, and finish the rest of the blocks for the top. Wish me luck!

    Faith, you design the COOLEST quilts with solids! You make it look easy, and then mere mortals like us scratch our heads and get muddled up by the million and one design decisions that go into the perfect tone, value, and placement of each solid color fabric to achieve that bold impact and sparkle. I would not be at all surprised if you spent more time DESIGNING each of your quilts than it take you to stitch them into reality. It would be interesting to see some of the alternate layout concepts you came up with for this block, especially if you release it as a pattern. I’m looking forward to seeing how this quilt finishes up!
