I love the stark contrast and dominant shapes that emerge when these crisp blocks are turned and sewn into a quilt top! Prism is stunning and quite simple to make too.

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!

Modern Neutrals :: In Motion

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.

Modern Neutrals :: Double Diamonds

Posted on June 18th, by Amy in finished quilt, Modern Neutrals. 8 comments

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.

Modern Neutrals :: Digital Pinwheel

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.

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 … Read More »



Simple Sampler Quilt-Along :: Finished!

Posted on June 10th, by Amy in finished quilt, quilt-along. 10 comments

If you follow me on instagram, you saw a few peeks at this quilt over the weekend.  I am so happy with the finished product! This being my first foray into quilting with rulers on the long-arm, I learned a ton, and look forward to my next one – in fact if you have a suggestion of rulers to use/purchase, I would love a little input.

Since you can’t see much of the quilting, I took close-up of a couple of my favorite blocks –

I spiraled in to the center in a square, then added graduated loops in the triangles.  All the sashing has figure 8’s, that grew more consistent, the more I quilted.

This one has a pebbled center, with double loops in the print, and graduated lines in the corners.  I had a lot of fun thinking up and trying … Read More »
