Modern Retro

Modern Retro was the theme for this months quilt.

I had a chat with my friend Hayden over at Dear Stella in NYC and we decided on these beauties. They are from their basics range in fabulous retro colours.

Working from a belt inspired design I’d drafted out in my notebook, I paired them up and created first the block, then with simple repeats, this quilt.

Thank you Tansy and Elaine, friends and subscribers to Popular Patchwork magazine, who kindly let me know – Buckle Up is on the cover 🙂 🙂 🙂

The magazine is on sale this weekend in WHSmiths and will be in Barnes and Noble in the US in about three weeks time. I can’t wait to see what treats are inside!
