Marcus' Quilt

Elizabeth's pattern again. I made this in a different colorway before. Love it! It makes a fast baby quilt that is so striking. This time I didn't chop any of the squares in half though. It went so fast. My 7-year-old son was helping me. It's for his friend's new baby brother.
Riley Blake's Wheels fabric line and some aqua solid. I think it's Kona, but I'm not sure of the exact name. I used the same quilting as in the last one -- straight-stitch zig-zag. I love the wavy look it gives.

Another Mod Sampler Quilt

Here's another quilt from my quilting group when we made Elizabeth Hartman's Mod Sampler Quilt as a group. Kim loves a black background and variegated thread. She always makes such bright, cheery quilts. She inspires me to try new things. One of these days, I am going to make a quilt with a black background, and it will be completely because of her.
Love the orphan butterflies on the back, Kim!
