Meet Fire. A traditionally pieced, modern quilt designed for the new quilter and beyond.

I used Dutch Tulip from Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics for this quilt. If you haven't heard of Cherrywood it is definitely a company you will want to check out. Their quilting cotton is hand dyed (of course) and looks like suede. It's gorgeous to work with and the colors are just saturated. I used yardage from each color in Dutch Tulip for Fire, though one of  them was just used for the binding.

Once the top was pieced I found the perfect Gutermann threads for quilting Fire and I began marking lines.

Lots and lots of lines.

I used my walking foot to quilt the entire quilt.

It took a long time, but it was so worth it.

I followed each section and I think it really helps bring your eye out from the center of the quilt to the edge.

Red binding to bring your eye to a stop at the edge of the quilt.

Fire finishes at 64" square. Use it to warm up under or as a statement piece in any room. Get Make Modern Issue 40 HERE.
