Modern Herringbone Reveal

I finished piecing the top on Sunday.  It took a few months to turn this:



into this:



The colors are a little brighter than they appear in the photo (I took the picture inside late yesterday afternoon).  This top is pieced from all solid color fabric.  My inspiration for the colors was this photo of the Kona Sunset precut in the book Color Essentials by Amanda Murphy.



 
This quilt definitely has a more modern vibe than my usual look but that was what I was going for.  I just loved the original (Pattern Play in APQ magazine) and thought it would be a good choice for Miss Main Street's bed, in the room she uses when she is home from college.  The top is 81" square so good for a full size bed.  I need backing fabric then it will be ready for quilting.

Really lovely. Your colors capture the modern essence of the pattern design. I'm sure Miss Main Street will love it.

This is very, verry beautiful!! I am determined to use solids in my quilting projects - starting this year. I have bought several bundles to get started. I would love to make something like this. I just found your blog - I will be coming back to visit often.

What a statement quilt! The younger set does seem to go for these graphic quilts - I know both my daughters do. Yours is a beauty!

Nicole said...

That is awesome! A statement quilt indeed. Doesn't the addition of black just make it sing?
