Gratitude Quilt Times Two

I'm currently working on two versions of the same quilt. It's called Gratitude and is the pattern and quilt kit that supports Jo Morton's recent fabric line for Moda of the same name, Gratitude. Here is what the original will look like.


I've made the five star blocks thus far, plus a bunch of flying geese units I didn't get photographed.


I love the pattern and the fabrics are really nice, but not my personal style. I thought why not make a second one using fabrics that are my personal style. A quick shopping trip through my shop and I was able to pick fabrics for a second quilt. Since I only showed the star blocks of the first one, here are the same blocks for the second quilt. Again, I've also got a bunch of flying geese units made too but not photo yet.


I'm using four Modern Background Paper prints as my light fabrics and 18 different darker prints that arrived in my shop recently for the rest. I don't usually make a pattern twice, let alone two at the same time! It is interesting to see how different the same pattern looks using completely different style fabrics.

Which is your favorite? I bet you can guess which is mine.

Love this quilt. I particularly like the fabrics in the second quilt. I like the brighter colors. You do beautiful work.

Can a person get the pattern without the kit? I can see that as a beautiful holiday quilt.

You'll need to scroll down a bit to find the pattern. It is called "Gratitude."
