Modern Triangles Part 2

The quilting is done on this modern quilt for my son! He was so happy to help me take this off my longarm frame that I let him sleep under it last night even though I haven't started the binding yet. Shortly after he turned 14, we decided to remodel his room. It was time for something more mature. We cleaned, organized, and painted then installed a new modern ceiling fan, display shelves, and technical space ship art. If you can't tell from the telescope, 3D printer, art work, and tools all over (yes his room was clean for a brief moment), he loves mechanical engineering and space exploration.


He was so happy with the changes in his room, that he then asked me to make him a new quilt to complete the project. He picked the design and colors and I started sketching (see part one for the details on the construction). I work full time so quilting a quilt of this size took several months but the wait was oh so worth it!

He picked a grey minky for the back and it is sooooo soft. He may never give it back to me to start the binding. I can't get over how the quilting pops on the minky. It was a little tricky to quilt because the minky is quite stretchy and wanted to pucker. I ended up using some bean bags to help weight the quilt and hold the backing flatter in some spots while quilting. Happy Quilting!

Hi! I'm Jen, a quilt pattern designer and teacher. I founded Snapdragon Quilting in the spring of 2022 in memory of my beloved Grandma Louise, a skilled seamstress and crafter who grew beautiful snapdragons in her garden. I've been sewing for as long as I can remember and began passionately crafting quilts of my own creation in 2006. My quilt patterns bring bold and vibrant designs that blend traditional piecing methods with contemporary techniques. I love to play with color and contrast so you'll find lots of layout and color options in my patterns. Whether you're new to quilting or making your 100th quilt, you're in the right place, because here at Snapdragon Quilting, quilt patterns make sense.
