Maryland flag quilt

Inspired by the angular lines of the Maryland flag, the design of which is based on the Calvert family's 17th century heraldic crest, I created this small wall hanging/crib quilt.

The quilt uses solid fabrics in shades of yellow and white with black and red accents, and is finished with straight-line quilting. The finished piece will be donated to a local child through Baltimore Early Headstart.

The block is called "Mod economy square" and it has a ton of versatility! Playing with color placement can bring several different areas to the foreground.
Just a few of the different quilt layouts you can make using this block:




Modern Flower Quilt

I designed this quilt with a low-contrast background and geometric flowers as a gift for my mother, a master gardener.



The shape of the flowers is reminiscent of the birds of paradise that grow in my mom's garden.
