GEOMETRIC HARMONY'S Magazine Sneak Peak #2

March 8, 2022

Geometric Harmony makes it debut in the March 2022 Issue #45 Make Modern Magazine.  That's this coming Friday.  Hip hip hooray !!!!

This is a sneak peek at one of the Blocks in the quilt.  As you can see, it's a very simple design.  You've already seen the shapes used throughout the design in the Geometric Harmony preview blog.  Then I showed you the actual fabric & color choices in Sneak Peek #1 and explained why those were my choices. 

So today, I'm sharing a digital photo of one of the actual blocks.  This photo illustrates just how vibrant the colors are and how the contrasting colors seem to compliment the other. 

Constructing Geometric Harmony Quilt
As I mentioned in a previous blog, this is really a simple quilt to put together.  You will need to do applique, of course.  And there are so many different techniques to securing the applique pieces to your background fabric.  My preferred method is raw edge applique with a straight topstitch to secure.  Needle turn, blanket/applique stitch or any decorative stitch on your machine would work great too.

There are a few things to keep in mind when making the blocks.  If you're using a fusible backing, make certain you have the applique pieces in the correct position as shown in the diagrams before pressing them in place.

After making sure all of the appliqued blocks have been completed, all that remains to be finished is to add the sashing, border & bindings.  Easy as pie.

This pattern is exclusively found in issue #45 of Make Modern magazine. There are at least 10+ patterns in each of the issues, so it's like getting a quilt pattern for $1.00.
