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 [...]

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.

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 [...]
