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.
