Modern Yardage Crib Quilt

So I've cut out some yummy triangles from the fun fabric that April and her team from Modern Yardage sent me. This project is gonna be pretty dang cute, but I'm moving kinda slow on it. It's a lot of precise piecing and keeping track of which piece comes next - two things that tend to take me a little longer than the average quilter.

 I met April at Quilt Market last October - and her adorable husband - through Kelly. April and her hubby started Modern Yardage last year and have been incredibly busy building their business and finding the right people to be a part of the MY team. The concept is pretty cool - it's print on demand fabric. And the website is very easy to use - you can shop by color, theme and scale. Yes, scale. I love that! If I need a tiny print because I'm doing an intricate paper piecing project, I can shop their tiny prints. And if I'm making a tote bag and want a large, blue print - well, I can find it without going through the whole dang website. Me likey that.

April and her team have been adding new designs and new designers all the time, so the selection is getting better everyday. And I'm so excited to support April in this endeavor. She's good people.
