Hi there Jolly Jabber Readers -
I'm really excited to have my most recent book, Modern Neutrals : A Fresh Look at Neutral Quilt Patterns, featured here! Usually I like bold, beautiful prints, but was challenged by my husband to think about quilts with less color, and maybe a little less feminine. As I began sketching ideas in neutral palettes, I became more excited about the quilts, and the home decor potential for each of the patterns.
Modern Neutrals includes 15 quilt patterns, ranging from simple to intricate. There are enough instructions to learn how to quilt for the novice, and a few new tips for advanced quilters as well. Of course they can be customized to suit any room, or gift recipient! Since all the fabrics are of neutral tones, I labeled them by depth, A – D with A fabrics being the lightest, it helped me to group my fabrics this way then select the prints to work with for each quilt.
