It's time for another installment of Modern By The Yard!  For those who aren't familiar with the magazine it's published by @benartex_fabrics and features quilted projects of all kinds along with a few fun extras.  The E-Zine is free and available to everyone. (https://www.yumpu.com/xx/document/view/62699339/modern-by-the-yard-issue-11)

My quilt ‘INTERLOCKED’ features Weeks Ringle & Bill Kerr’s (@modernquiltstudio) yarn dyed collection ‘Warp & Weft’. The pattern is available in Modern By The Yard Issue 11. 
The graphic design appears to connect or join together like a puzzle and offers so many options as far as fabrics or colors!

Rainbow = Pride! 🌈🌈🌈 Again with the borders!!! The logs of the log cabin finish at 1/4”, 5 3/4” finished block.  Many thanks to @jeliquilts for such a challenging and amazing block!  Now...no more for a while!  Says me to myself! #twiggyandopal #makersgonnamake #makemodern #paperpiecing #jeliquiltspattern #flyinggeese #quiltersofinstagram #miniquilt #tinypiecing
One of two Skinny Minny geese...perhaps I’m obsessed or I had the templates printed and didn’t want them to go to waste?! Pattern by @jeliquilts 🌼 The geese block is 4”, with borders it grew to 6 1/2”. Rainbow block to follow soon!!! #twiggyandopal #makersgonnamake #makemodern #paperpiecing #jeliquiltspattern #flyinggeese #quiltersofinstagram #miniquilt #tinypiecing
There are days when...things don’t go as planned. (Who knew a fabric shop would be on vacay?), when even Target can’t fill the void (I couldn’t find anything good!), you have a few totally ‘you’ hours but haven’t a clue how to spend them (daughter at work, husband finally golfing!). I ended up taking a stray block and re-working it. Nothing earth shattering, just play time.  Yet...somehow not as satisfying as I had hoped it would be! 😪 #twiggyandopal #makemodern #makersgonnamake #quiltersofinstagram
I couldn’t resist making this gorgeous @quietplay star the other day!  I made the 5” star using a mini charm pack of @alisonglass Sunprints 🌈 I can’t resist a rainbow! #twiggyandopal #makersgonnamake #aurifil #makemodern #paperpiecing #quiltersofinstagram @quietplay #quietplaypatterns #quietplaypatternclub #alisonglass #miniquilt #rainbowstar
It kept growing and growing, but alas...all good things must come to an end!  I love @jeliquilts paper pieced Skinny Minny geese. And I love to add my take on patterns.  The geese around the center I made in an attempt to mimic the skinny geese, mostly I wanted add a bit more color.  Size: 17” x 17”. I’ll hold off on the quilting until a brilliant idea (or any idea) hits me. #twiggyandopal #makersgonnamake #makemodern #paperpiecing #jeliquiltspattern @jeliquilts  #aurifil #aurifilthread #flyinggeese #rainbow #quiltersofinstagram
This size I can handle!! My test half circles were good enough to make into a 15” x 42” runner and worthy of finishing. Machine quilted with @aurifilthread (5022) Mustard in diagonal 1/2” lines, a bit of pebbles, some swag and a geometric star.  All that color...too much?  Never!!! #twiggyandopal #makersgonnamake #makemodern #aurifil #aurifilthread #makersgonnamake #machinequilting #halfcircles
There are always patterns that are worth making over and over again... @jeliquilts Skinny Minny geese are one of those! This time I changed it up by using 24 different colors and a background using 6 shades of gray!  The block should finish at 8”, but I think I want to add more to it. No idea what that might be...stay tuned! #twiggyandopal #makersgonnamake #makemodern #makemodern #quiltersofinstagram #aurifil #jeliquiltspattern @jeliquilts
It’s true!! Quilty friends are the best!! @ellynz and I did a little swap! I’m declaring I’m the winner and luckiest! Two hand woven kitchen towels in the perfect colors ever! Will I use them?! Yes!! That was part of the deal! I couldn’t be happier, can you tell?! Thank you so much Ellyn! ❤️ #twiggyandopal #makersgonnamake #makemodern #quiltersofinstagram #woventowels #quiltyfriendsarethebest
This was a fun step...quilting the ‘bejeebers’ (technical term!) on this!! Densely quilted curvy lines using about ten different thread colors.  The last picture is of the seams on the back before quilting. This was the first time I pressed seams open on curves and I like it!  Do you press your seams open? Next up binding.  I think I’ll do a faced binding on this one. 🌊 qg #makersgonnamake #aurifil #makemodern #improvcurves #organicquilting #oceanwaves #improv #makemodern #showusyourmqg #curves
Botanical Rubber Ducky sporting the ever popular power of pink! 🌺 I forgot to add a complimentary color for the wing until it was far too late in the paper piecing process. The pattern is by @zephyrskies and reduced to 70% for a 6 1/2” finish. #twiggyandopal #makersgonnamake #aurifil #paperpiecing #rubberducky #zephyrskiespatterns #miniminiquilt #makemodern
I started this Bohemian Churn Dash quilt well over a year ago and finally got the courage to finish it! Large quilts (76” x 93”) are not fun to quilt on a domestic machine! The pattern is from American Patchwork & Quilting magazine 2/2008. Assorted solids for the background and all @annamariahorner fabric for the churn dash blocks. I took the opportunity to use more AHM in the pieced back. My arms and shoulders have finally recovered...there is a reason I love making lap quilts!! #twiggyandopal #quiltersofinstagram #showusyourmqg #makersgonnamake #aurifil #makemodern #churndash #annamariahorner
