Modern Neutrals :: Placid Curves

By |June 19th, 2013|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 […]

Modern Neutrals :: Double Diamonds

By |June 18th, 2013|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.
