My Blogger’s Quilt Festival Entry :: Quill

I’m excited to share a recent quilt that hasn’t made it to the blog yet! Quill is made in my Modern Neutral fabrics, and I loved making it and quilting it up.

I actually finished this one up just after Market last spring, and quickly shipped it off to be in Quilty. (It’s in the issue on newsstands now!)

Quill measures 56″ x 72″ and is made of just three LARGE blocks, then adding the solid on one side. I love the statement that it makes, and the simplicity of the quilt. I outlined the “diamond” shapes with quilting, then added in random straight lines from the center to the edge. All the texture in there is so comfy! Here’s a closer look :

I had found a bit of inspiration for this quilt, and had been obsessing over making it. I was so excited when it found a home with Quilty, thus I had a good reason to make it! I, of course, love it in my fabrics, but think it is super versatile and could be made in a ton of different fabrics.

Have you had a chance to visit many of the entries? I have looked at a bunch, but not nearly all of them! I’m hoping to absorb a ton of inspiration over the weekend!

Happy Quilting –

Amy

    Great quilt – love your color scheme and the modern layout. It calls for a warm fireplace, a good cup of tea and a great quilting book :)

    Amy, I spotted this quilt right away when my issue of Quilty arrived. (BTW, I really look forward to your column in Quilty!) It’s wonderful to see such a soft, neutral palette (adore your fabric collection!) and all the white space. Something for this beginner to strive for!

    Can’t decide what I like more – the palette, the design…are both so beautiful and clever. Superb quilt.

    I ordered the kit from Quilty and made it for my son as his Christmas present. It is perfect for him! Thanks for the excellent design!
