My daughter and her husband have been slowly painting and redecorating their new home since October.  They finally moved her husband's office out of the family room and into his newly decorated office and purchased a sectional sofa and popped on the biggest TV on the wall I have ever seen.  All 85 inches of it.  Actually I am jealous, watching a cooking show on that thing is heaven.  Can you imagine what watching a quilting video would be?  Needless to say they need a quilt that will go with the new furnishings. 
Now their decorative scheme is somewhat Art Deco.  Back in the winter of 2015 I found this pattern in my Issue 3 of Quilts and Crafts Simply Moderne.  I actually found fabric, and made all the blocks way back then, and stashed them away along with the border fabric.  So when beginning to think about a quilt for her family room I realized, WOW I have one well on its way and it is perfect for that room.  
They even have the rows all set out with markings on them.  
So I laid it out on the guest bed and have started sewing it together.  
This is the border fabric and binding.  
And these are the half blocks that will be incorporated into the borders.  I should have this put together this week and off to the quilters.  The hope to get it done for his gift for Father's Day.



  1. I love the blocks, they are so graphic.

    85" tv? Sounds wonderful.


  2. Good Morning! Well, this is one cool quilt and quilt blocks. How fun - although I don't know if anything will take attention away from the 85" TV!! WOWEE - that is BIG. HAHA! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I really like those fabrics and the blocks are so cool. Hope you will link up the flimy next week. Thank you very much for linking up with me today.

  4. Very much an out of the box quilt and will go beautifully with a modern decor. Love it!

  5. Oh, WOW!!! That is going to be a FABULOUS gift!!!

  6. What a great feeling to find you already have the perfect quilt in progress to give them for their room! I think that's going to make a neat design!

  7. Oh my! This is turning out gorgeous! What a beautiful addition to their re-decorated room. 85" TV. Holy Cow! That would be GREAT to watching quilting details! I'm sure if it's that size it is also hooked up to all the latest technology and they can view YouTube videos and such. What fun!

  8. oh my goodness this will be perfect!!!!
    you are the best Mom!!
