The idea for this quilt came from the fact that I have always admired vintage harlequin quilts and I wondered what it might look like in Modern colors?!

The other quilt I put in the show was this one. You can read more about the inspiration for this quilt here
This quilt was a lot of fun to make. I think I will try making it again but more scrappy and not in flannel as the flannel was a bit too stretchy.
