Another new quilt--finished today. I enjoyed making this pattern from Stephanie Prescott at A Quilter's Dream.

It is a large lap quilt--60" x 72", made for 30 fat quarters in ten tonal groups of light, medium and dark. It was challenging to cut the various pieces, since there are so many different sizes in each square.

I used a simple circular pattern to quilt this piece, so as not to detract from the "googlies".

I love the way this quilt turned out. It is among the most "modern" of the quilts I have attempted and all of the half square triangle element were intimidating. The kit was from Craftsy, but I made just a few modifications.

I used a pattern with lots of points to quilt this one, to echo all of the points in the pattern.
