Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month

A quilt block I designed is featured as the Modern Quilt Guild's Block of the Month.

You can find the pattern and an article on utilizing foreground/background in quilt design to give your quilts movement for MQG members only, here



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:

Teacup Pincushion

I made this teacup pincushion last year from a vintage Fiestaware cup and saucer. It was a fun little project, and now it's featured in Issue 18 of Make Modern Magazine!



Ontario Museum of Art

My quilt "Star at Sea" is included in the exhibition Modern Quilts: Redesigning Tradition  at the Ontario Museum of Art. The show highlights the ways that "modern quilters consider traditional patterns in new and exciting ways." My asymmetrical interpretation of the traditional "Storm at Sea" pattern is an excellent example of this type of modern traditionalism.



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.
