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 :: Circuit Board

By |June 17th, 2013|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 [...]

Modern Basics II :: Modern Cross-Stitch

By |February 14th, 2013|finished quilt, Modern Basics|1 Comment

Modern Cross-Stitch is a simple, graphic design.  I love texture and the feel of the Cross Weave fabrics, they tend to be a bit thicker than most quilting cottons and they quilt up beautifully.  Of course this would be stunning in prints as well - what would you use? Modern Cross-Stitch measures 68″ x 85″ [...]
