It Figures It's Modern Totems - A Finished Top

Happy Thursday, all! I taught my Modern Totems workshop for the Ottawa Valley Quilt Guild last weekend. So much fun!

I love seeing the different fabrics that people pick for this pattern (yes, it's still in the works, but I'm slow). One person used a couple of Pretty Potent charm packs paired with a browny blue shot cotton. It's going to be gorgeous. Another used purples, oranges and greys I think, paired with a white. Beautiful and fresh! Someone else used a more traditional fabric line paired with a white tone-on-tone paisley fabric and it looked fabulous too. It's proving to be a pretty versatile pattern. Woo hoo!

I finished up my top last night.

It uses a Figures by Zen Chic charm pack paired with Kona white. I'm thinking alternating straight-line and squiggly-line quilting on the vertical for this one. :)


  1. That is awesome!! You are just so clever! I did read you are planning on making this a class, how lucky are those who attend one of your classes, I bet they learn alot?!!!

  2. it is such a great design! it will look fabulous in all kinds of fabrics

  4. It looks wonderful and I'm sure your ideas for the fmq will work very well.

  5. Would have loved to be at the workshop. It's a great pattern.
