Modern Neutrals :: Placid Curves


Posted on June 19th, by Amy in finished quilt, Modern Neutrals. 8 comments

Placid Curves is a showstopper! I’ve watched a number of people flip through Modern Neutrals, and nearly every one had to stop and look at Placid Curves just a bit longer than the rest. While there are a lot of tiny squares and rectangles, there are actually not any curves – simply the illusion of such.  It’s strip-pieced too – much simpler than it looks!

Placid Curves measures 84″ x 96″ with fabric and block requirements for a throw size included.

Expertly pieced by Audrie of Blue is Bleu!

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 AdornItAndoverCloud 9Dear StellaModaRiley Blake,Robert Kaufman, and Windham - Many thanks to my friends at each of these companies. I shared about my fabric selection and classification process in this post.

    How did you ever come up with this beauty Amy? I’m going to read the pattern again and decide if I can make it.

    This quilt is truly a show stopper. It is visually stunningly wonderful!!! The simple echo waves of the quilting add to the curving illusion.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

    I LOVELOVELOVE this quilt!! The whole reason I bought the book! Not one to copy quilts “exactly” (color scheme etc…) but may just have to for my first one… I am already envisioning SEVERAL. Don’t know if this would be a good “quilt along” kind of project, but I had thoughts of that as well.

    this is a stunning quilt. I had to keep looking at it and looking at it. The wavy quilting really does add to the circular feeling.

    I really like this quilt! The illusion of curves is fascinating. While I think it looks lovely in neutrals, I also think it would be fantastic in brights on white.
