Gold and dark green , my favorite colors.

I love using blacks and grays. I enjoy your modern quilting projects. Keep up the good work. Thank you for a great giveaway.

I use this site often for quilt ideas and have made several patterns shared by other quilters. In recent months, I've supersized some of the modern blocks to make larger quilts.

I so appreciate this wonderful pattern source. When looking for a certain something, this is the first place I look. I've used it many times.

I am actually a fan of patterns that are a bit of both. I love traditional quilts that are made in modern colors.
