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.

    Really love your new header! Love the photo shoot too. The quilts with the one block turned give such cool effects.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
