My love for the modern quilt was a mystery that I wanted to analyze and figure out how to create a modern quilt. My first artistic journey started with signing up for a Craftsy class with Jacquie Gering.

After understanding how to create a modern quilt, I realized I had to have a design wall. Of course, my thought was to find a design wall. I bought the Fons and Porters 60 inch by 72 inch design wall. My husband put hooks above my studio closet.

After I received my design wall and it was hung on my closet. I dyed the fabric using Inktense blocks in many colors. After that had dried, I cut the fabric and added strips of fabric sometimes quilted to create a modern piece. I have four of these blocks that are similar however differently cut, I used my creativity to cut and piece modern blocks and placed them on my design wall.designpanel
I will continue this post as this modern quilt becomes an actual quilt.

Since I need to have a background to start working on my design wall, I am experimenting with a new technique, dying fabric using Artsy frame and lace. I sprayed blue paint onto lace patterns. I will create a new post when that is dried. Hopefully, this will work, but time will tell.

After I died the white cotton spray dyed with blue from a lace table cloth. I used the design wall to cut up into small pieces and hand pieced and free motion quilted the quilt. This quilt is completely hand dyed, pieced, and quilted by me.
