Modern Basics :: Quilts

Posted on March 7th, by Amy in finished quilt, Modern Basics. 32 comments

I found a sunny day at last, and had an hour to spare outside with my quilts!

All 14 of them is a lot to carry, and get hung, but I’m so glad that I did.

Did you notice the new header?

This is a picture heavy post!  I thought I would share the name and a detail or two for each quilt.

Basic Ease ~ One block turned – great first project!

Tumbling Cubes ~ One block, minimalist.

1, 2, 3! (R) ~ Showcase favorite prints, without cutting too small. Wind Power (L) ~ Introduction to half square triangles.

Modern V (R)~ Dynamic contrast equals a great pattern. Basic Puzzle (L) ~ No blocks required, just cut and piece!

Posie Patch ~ Layer Cake friendly, and an intro to appliqué.

Graduation ~ No blocks here, cut and piece your top!

Modern Maze ~ One block turned.

Modern Cabin ~ Strip pieced blocks, in light and dark fabrics.

Twisted Bars ~ Fun block with scrappy possibilities.

Knotted Squares ~ Deceptively simple

Basic Postage (L) ~ Simplified even more with a jelly roll! Basic Puzzle (C)

Modern Mirrors ~ Alternating rows, makes a great pattern

There’s so many more pictures that I could share with you!  All of the quilting was done by Natalia, and it’s fantastic!  Natalia quilts via the mail too (hint, hint!) if you ever need something quilted by a pro.

Happy Quilting~

  1. Your one block style really appeals to me. Doing the same thing over and over becomes meditative and feels great. I’m eager to see more of your quilts.

  2. I love all the quilts hang together and they made an amazing header for you. I just ordered your book a few days ago on Amazon, it’s due to arrive this Thursday.

  3. Amy,
    Your quilts are beautiful! The photos are wonderful and I feel very encouraged that I could make something that beautiful too. Thank you for all your efforts….I’ll be buying a copy of your book for my treasure shelf….my special quilting and needle art books.


  4. LOVE them, Amy!!! My favorite is Knotted Squares with 1,2,3 coming in next. And I also LOVE the header!! Noticed it the other day and forgot to mention how beautiful it is!! Hope you have a happy Monday!

  5. I love them! Do you think the puzzle one would look OK with prints? I’m looking for a pattern to make my 6-yr-old nephew a quilt & I like the puzzle one. I want to use boyish prints though.

  6. Hi Amy,

    I like them all, but I love, love, love Knotted Squares! Modern Mirrors is my second fave. Thanks for showing them for those of us who haven’t won or purchased them yet.


  7. I didn’t win a book that I know of yet. I’ll hope to get to SLC and see you to get one in June. Nice pictures in the snow. Hope it goes away by the time I need to travel through. My favorite is the Knotted Squares too.

  8. I am so excited! After much figuring and nearly all afternoon of doing it, I finally have my copy ordered! I already have the fabric ready for the first quilt I intend making out of this book – Knotted Squares!

    Thank you Amy!

  9. FANTASTIC! What a lovely bunch of quilts – the header picture is wonderful! This book is for certain on my wish list!

  10. Wow! I admire your quilts and your patience to make them. However, may I ask, what do you do with all of them after finish making them? I always ask myself this question before I make one and turn out I only had several of them made so far since I had limited space in my house.
