WIP Wednesday: Chevrons and Mid-Mod

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Let's do this thing.

Still working on nephew Jack's baby quilt. I finished all the gray chevron strips and I'm moving on to the green and blue now.

Business and Leisure by Allison Bielke for Modern Yardage
Next up is a quilt with this fabulous fabric from the "Business and Leisure" line by Allison Bielke for Modern Yardage. Allison is a friend from the Milwaukee Modern Quilt Guild, not to mention a very talented designer who takes a lot of her inspiration from mid-century modern design. I'm so excited to work with her fabric on this next project!

Check out some of Allison's city print fabrics, too—like Paris Chicago, and (of course) Milwaukee. Love! And you can buy them all right here, from Modern Yardage, an exciting new kind of fabric company that I hope to devote an entire post to in the future.

And last but not least, check out the massive pattern shipment that arrived at my house yesterday! This isn't even half of it. : ) I got my Wisconsin business registration a few days ago as well, so I guess between these two things, I am now officially official.

I love comments and read every one of them! : )
