It should be no secret that I am fascinated with mandala designs. My mandala madness first began with free motion quilted mandalas for Project Quilting (Mystical Mandala & Crayon Etched Mandala) followed by some Mini Mandalas. Then I experimented with some fusible appliqued mandalas for my Cherrywood Lion King Challenge entry, Circle of Life.
And now, I unveil my newest mandala design: Modern Mandalas!!! Below is "Hot Pink Prototype," my first attempt at piecing a modern mandala. I just love how the strips of solid black and the zebra print sparkle against the hot pink background!

A variety of looping designs were densely free-motion quilted into the hot pink background, adding contrast and loft to the pieced design.

I am really in love with these new Modern Mandalas and hope you are too...as there may just be a few more Modern Mandala quilt designs on the near horizon!
