Modern Neutrals : A Fresh Look at Neutral Quilt Patterns

Posted on April 17th, by Amy in Modern Neutrals. 24 comments

I’ve been keeping a big secret from all of you…last year I actually wrote two books! My first copy of Modern Neutrals arrived yesterday afternoon – yay! After all the work is done, it’s is so great to hold it in my hands now!

Modern Neutrals -

The inspiration for Modern Neutrals came when my husband, Joe, reminded me that not everyone loves big and bold color as much as I do.  It was a fun challenge to work with neutral fabrics, and create interesting designs that I loved making into quilts!  The subtleties in the neutral tones are great for creating beautifully textured quilts. I kinda fell in love with the neutral palette while designing and writing this book.

Modern Neutrals includes 15 quilt patterns, many of them in multiple sizes, to offer you lots of options.  The quilt patterns vary from simple to intricate, making it a great book for any level of quilter!

**Modern Neutrals ships the first week of May, right now you can pre-order and view the quilts on Amazon, or pre-order an autographed in my bookshop!

Thanks to all of you for inspiring me to create everyday – Amy
