Magazine pattern

I fell in love with Amy Ellis’s ‘Dash’ quilt in Modern Patchwork May/June 2018 magazine the moment I saw it. I had to make it.

Dash by Amy Ellis

Here is my version. I decided on using prints instead of solids and I added couple of extra fabrics to have more variety. I did move some of the blocks around but I still feel it looks similar to the Amy’s. The quilt doesn’t have a name yet. I was thinking that it had a hint of Halloween colors but not sure. Any suggestions?


It is almost the end of fall in Minnesota. I thought I better take a picture of my burning bush shrub before all of the leaves drop. The good news is that I have quite a bit of perennial plants in my garden and the bad news is that I have lot of perennial plants that need to be cut down for the winter. Lots of work but I am almost done. There are still leaves on one tree so I will need to rake and cleanup the yard again.

    What a beautiful quilt. I really love the fabrics you chose, they are so pretty but also quite calm which I think works very well for the pattern. Can’t think of a name off the top of my head but I’ll have a think.

      Kirstin, the quilt was fun and easy to make. I agree, the fabrics give the quilt a quiet and relaxed feeling. thanks for stopping by. Micki

    I admire the understated elegance of this quilt. Orange, peach and gray really work well. As far as name is concerned, how about cat and mouse? orange for the tabby cat and gray for the mouse 😀
