Finished Scattered Quilt! My Modern Quilt Entry In Blogger's Quilt Festival

I did it! I finished my "Scattered" Quilt in time to enter it into Blogger's Quilt Festival. This was no easy feat with a seven week old baby plus two older kids.

Scattered Quilt. Pieced and quilted by Anita LaHay. Designed by Allison Harris.

This quilt measures 60 x 72 inches. Fabric for the triangles is "Barcelona" by Zen Chic for Moda.

I plan to put this quilt on my son's quilt. I think it will transition well into the tween and teen years.

I used a chartreuse green solid on the back and a bright orange solid for the binding. All threads used for piecing, quilting and binding are Aurifil 50 weight threads. I used a green thread on the back (in the bobbin), a grey thread on the front and an orange for the hand sewn binding.

A Happy Halloween Finish!
I have wanted to sew this quilt since the book "Modern Quilts From the Blogging Universe" came out in 2012. I'm glad I waited though because the Barcelona fabric line was not out yet at that time and I think it's perfect for this quilt. This quilt is designed by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew and it is the last quilt in the book. I am so happy to have achieved my goal of sewing this fantastic modern quilt!
