Modern Cover 200 5 Days of Best Modern Quilts Blog Tour – Day 3

Good morning, and welcome to day three of the 5 Days of Best Modern Quilts Blog Tour! We’re excited about this issue – on sale now in quilt shops and bookstores, on newsstands and on QuiltandSewShop.com in both hard-copy and digital editions – and we hope this blog tour gives you an inside look at the many wonderful patterns and talented designers who contributed to this special issue. Be sure to check out both of today’s wonderful designers for two chances to win some free fabric and a copy of Best Modern Quilts 2014!

Today’s first stop on the blog tour is Jen Daly Quilts, the blog home of our most prolific Best Modern Quilts 2014 designer, Jen Daly. Jen designed three projects in this issue, the first being her lap quilt, Ebb & Flow which was made with Moda Cross Weave solids and features a give-and-take quality which keeps the eye moving. It was machine quilted by Joyce Lundrigan of Methodist Hill Quilt Studio, Plainfield, New Hampshire.

Jen Daly’s second project in Best Modern Quilts 2014 was Metro, a table runner which combines four solid colors with white, an eye-popping color scheme which is enhanced by the ingeniously simple block layout.

Last but not least, Jen Daly’s third and final project in Best Modern Quilts 2014 was a pillow for which the inspiration was found while taking her dog for a walk along a forest path, Green Tea.
