Modern Neutrals :: Circuit Board


Posted on June 17th, by Amy in finished quilt, Modern Neutrals. 18 comments

Modern Neutrals has been available for purchase just over a month, and I thought it time to share a little more about the project!  This book was different than my other two, in that I didn’t look for collections of neutral fabrics (there aren’t many), instead I looked for the neutral prints within fabric collections and went from there. I would guess that many of you have a nice collection of neutral fabrics already in your stash that would be great for these projects!

As I collected fabric, I began to classify it by depth of tone, in the book all the fabrics are labeled A-D, with A being the lightest.  After classifying the fabrics, it was a matter of discerning the undertones of each, not all neutrals work well together – ha! – and making adjustments to my plans, as necessary. The quilts of Modern Neutrals are graphic, some simple, others more intricate, and designed to add sophistication and texture to living spaces.

The first quilt to share is Circuit Board :

Circuit Board, Modern Neutrals- AmysCreativeSide.com
As you can see, not all the fabrics are an exact match.  I love the flecks of color and variety in each of the blocks, I think it adds interest, and at times movement, depending on the pattern.  This is one block turned and alternated in color

Circuit Board  measures 72″ x 96″ with fabric and block requirements for a throw size included.

Pieced by April Rosenthal of Prairie Grass Patterns

Quilted by Natalia Bonner - with all the quilts in Modern Neutrals, I asked Natalia to keep it simple, no frills, and I love the results!

Fabrics used in Modern Neutrals were supplied by AdornIt, Andover, Cloud 9, Dear Stella, Moda, Riley Blake, Robert Kaufman, and Windham - Many thanks to my friends at each of these companies.

    [...] Digital Pinwheel is one of the more simple designs in the book, I love the graphic sense to the quilt, and the subtle movement in the depth of the fabric tones. I shared about my fabric selection and classification process in this post. [...]

    [...] Double Diamonds is one of the more intricate designs in the book, but a fun challenge! The blocks can be turned lots of different ways to make different patterns – I had a hard time deciding which way to set them for the book.  I shared about my fabric selection and classification process in this post.

    [...] In Motion, is one of my favorite quilts in the book! With lots of half-square triangle units, this quilt is not  a quick project, but SO worth the time and energy! My girls helped me press all those HST units, having an assistant or two is always helpful :) I shared about my fabric selection and classification process in this post. [...]
