My member, Jessica, was pretty open on what she wanted made for her- and she mentioned liking grey backgrounds, and modern prints. I used some prints from Ty Pennington's line, Anna Marie Horner's Innocent Crush, and a mix of other fabrics I had from Sew Modern.
I quilted the front with simple straight lines for a linear effect. The back is a simple envelope enclosure in a bright eclectic print. What do you think? I will be giving it to Jessica this Monday Night and will let you know what I receive! I hope she likes it~

I really love the colors and modern fabrics used in this quilt for my parents. They had requested "Blues and Browns" - but I gravitated towards Blues and Greys - with a splash of yellow. It turned out to have a hint of UCLA Bruin colors, so apropos!
I attempted a more intricate "straight-line" quilting technique following the cross pattern on the backside.... I think it makes for a great textural effect.
