Modern Neutrals :: Sliced

Posted on June 27th, by Amy in finished quilt, Modern Neutrals. 1 Comment

Modern Neutrals :: Quadrille

Quadrille is a simple update to a quarter cabin block.  I love the shapes and patterns that emerge with the addition of half-square triangle units!

Featuring Alison — A Blogger’s Quilt Festival Quilter!

Posted on June 21st, by Amy in Featured Quilter. 5 comments

I’m so glad to bring back this Friday Feature! Today’s featured quilter is Alison, who won the scrappy quilt category in the most recent festival. Alison blogs at Little Island Quilting, and I hope you enjoy getting to know her better -

1. When did you begin quilting?

I began quilting when I lived in the Netherlands. In a nearby village there was (and still is) a beautiful quilt shop called De Dekenkist. They had the most wonderful window displays and I would always stop and stare but never dare to go in because I felt my Dutch wasn’t good enough. One day, feeling a bit more confident about my Dutch, I went in and had a look around. One of the assistants asked if she could help me, I replied back in Dutch and then she (recognising my accent) switched to … Read More »



Modern Neutrals :: Pleated Patchwork

Posted on June 20th, by Amy in finished quilt, Modern Neutrals. No Comments

Pleated Patchwork is the one that almost got away! Since there is nothing else in the book quite like it, I put it in the front to set the tone of the book.  Adding texture to living spaces, is the whole goal! This quilt is a great way to incorporate a variety of prints, in a variety of neutral tones, in one quilt.

Pleated Patchwork :

Pleated Patchwork  measures 60″ x 70″.

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 :

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

Expertly pieced by Audrie of Blue is Bleu!
