I’ve been having a great time recoloring all of the quilts from my book Machine Quilting with Style. I hope you’ve been getting inspired by all the possibilities. 🙂
This week, I’m sharing about Broken V. First, here’s the original – a simple modern design made from half-square triangles. I love how the solids really show off the machine quilting, but it would look just as fabulous in prints!

Broken V Re-imagined
First of all, I thought it would be fun to change out the background to a dark navy while still pairing it up with bold solids:
I design all of my quilts using Electric Quilt Software.
For the next re-coloring, I thought it would be fun to use Cozy Christmas prints from Lori Holt for a completely different look, perfect for the upcoming holidays:
Each week along with sharing new versions of each quilt, I’m also hosting a giveaway. It’s like a 12 week-long birthday party, celebrating the joy that writing this book has brought into my life after just a year in print!
Last time Jean K. and Lillian K each won a four pack of my quilt patterns. This week I’m going to send one lucky winner a copy of The Quilter’s Planner, produced by my friend Stephanie Palmer of Late Night Quilter.
I was excited to have my Feathered Chevrons quilt included along with 13 other fabulous projects shown below.
And if that wasn’t exciting enough, Stephanie is also throwing in a fun bundle of Blueberry Park fabric for another lucky winner.
How to Enter
Just leave a comment below letting me know how you usually plan out your days. Do you use a paper planner? A digital tool? The back of your hand??? 🙂
I’ll pick 2 US winners next Friday when I reveal the next recolored quilt!
