Modern Neutrals :: Sliced

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

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  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

Posted on June 18th, by Amy in finished quilt, Modern Neutrals. 4 comments

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.
