Today i’m sharing photos of Anna’s < > Quilt from her new book Handmade Style. I just love the simplicity of this quilt! It’s so “Dutch Modern” to me, and perfectly fits Anna’s style. I wasn’t at all surprised when I pulled this top out to quilt. Anna and I talked briefly about the pattern and both arrived at this simple design.
The design is a simple repeat that I drew up in AutoSketch and had the Statler (computer) quilt out. I made sure to center the diamonds into the center yellow space for the best effect. While it is essentially an “edge-to-edge” design, it was important to me that it be properly placed.
For such a simple design, I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it turned out. I knew as soon as I saw this I was going to have to make one of my own. I love her use of the yellow with subtly printed white prints. I’m pretty sure i’m going to need to use this same yellowy-green fabric.
