What materials did you use? This is my first stab at a Modern Quilt. Angela Walters' Quilting Negative Spaces opened up a lot of fun for me with my long arm quilting machine. I learned to turn off the stitch regulator and become one with my machine as I free-handed all that quilting in a huge variety of stitching patterns... WITHOUT marking most of it ahead of time! Nathaniel is my 6 year old Grandson and this will be his quilt... right after I take it for Show and Tell at my local Quilt Guild meeting.

Marilyn, it sure looks like you had fun doing this quilt! Plus you were very, very brave to do it in contrasting thread so all the quilting shows! Lovely and I am sure Nathaniel loves it!

Yeah! I got the chance to see this beautiful work in person at the Cotton Patch Quilter's biannual quilt show. Great job, Marilyn!
