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 :: 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 […]

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.

Double Diamonds […]

Modern Neutrals :: Digital Pinwheel

By |June 17th, 2013|finished quilt, Modern Neutrals|3 Comments

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

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 […]
