Hot off the Quilt Frame is the Monterrey Medallions by Atkinson Designs.
I had this pattern booklet for a while now and could not decide what colors or if I wanted to make it scrappy like the photo on the pattern booklet. But then we started getting in all the blacks in the Inkwell and American Gothic collections. I just knew it was perfect for this stunning quilt. It is now hanging at the shop.
I used one solid Moda Bella Natural - 12 for the background and the Moda Bella Kansas Red -120 for the contrast fabric. The book has patterns for two version Simple and Challenge. We chose the Challenge version, the main visual difference is the red fabrics. But I think that is what gives this pattern it's AHHHH!!!
The center is a large star with a log type block set on point.
The stars are simple Ohio star type blocks.
The outside is a Jacobs Ladder block. I quilted it with a medallions, feathers and in the ditch. I finished mine as the large 90" x 90".
I picked a light piece from the American Gothic Collection for my backing and bound it with a black print. I just loved working with a scrappy type pattern, but in one color way. It really adds contrast and texture, without looking busy.
Thanks for letting me share.
