Quilt Pattern: Modern By the Yard – Confetti Marks

It is my pleasure to share my latest quilt pattern for Modern By the Yard, the free quarterly e-zine by Benartex. I was excited for a chance to work with Christa Watson's new Modern Marks line of fabric. I love the geometric designs on her prints and the bold, saturated color!

My design super fast one-seam blocks. The placement of the blocks gives the quilt it's tossed design, like confetti! It coordinates so well with the ocean wall in my daughter's room.

I chose one of my favorite prints, Half Ovals in Teal for my backing fabric. It is free motion quilted with a triangular meander motif using 50wt Aurifil.

I'd love to see your project if you make this project or any of my other patterns. You can use #sarahgoerquilts on social media.

I hope you enjoy this issue of Modern by the Yard. Head over the Sew in Love with Fabric for previews of all the projects in issue #7 and a link to the full issue which you can view online or download as a PDF. This beautiful cover quilt, Icicles, was designed by Chris at made by ChrissieD.

I'm linking up to TGIFF, Needle & Thread Thursday, and Finish It Up Friday.

  1. Love this design, Sarah. I will HAVE to make it this year some time. I can’t believe how prolific you have been with all your new patterns in the last six months or so! Congratulations! Take care, Mary.

    This is a fun quilt. Love the background colour. I've downloaded the issue -- just need to make some time to read through.

    Unbelievable! Sarah, did you know Bobbi Finley is also our birthday sister?

    Thank you for the lovely gift, it is beautiful.

    I'm heading for Oregon this morning to a Crafting-Paloosa at my 90 y/o dad's house.

    Have a blast with your sister.

      Thank you, Joni! Crafting-Paloosa sounds like a jolly good time! And I bet it's beautiful in Oregon in the Fall. (Isn't it beautiful there all the time!?) My sister and I had a great time. So nice to get away with her!
