Going North – Easy Strip Pieced Half Square Triangle Pattern – Simple Quilts for the Modern Home from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Learn how to make Going North, the first pattern in my first book, “Simple Quilts for the Modern Home.”

Going North has expansive negative space, a hallmark of modern quilt design, so you just have one panel to piece. That makes it great if you are just learning, need a fast gift, or want some wide open space to practice your quilting on.

In this tutorial I walk you through how to strip piece, how to use the 45-degree lines on your 6×24-inch ruler to cut half square triangles, how to work with directional fabric and how to pin ...

Moonlight, a Strip Quilt and Pattern from Selvage Blog

 "Moonlight" is my most recent quilt finish. The (Kona Ash Gray) sashing color gives a moonlight look to this quilt. And I love the piano keys. Using only two strips rather than four, and placing them asymmetrically adds a little modern whimsy. I used the same striped fabric for backing and binding. You can see the striped binding in the photo above. And here are some detail photos below. Pattern coming soon on Etsy. I'll keep you posted.

Classic Meets Modern Finale! from My Quilt Infatuation

As hard as it is to believe, we've been quilting along on our Classic Meets Modern quilts for a full twelve months, and it's time to close this baby out.  If you've kept up, all of the blocks are finished and now they just have to be put together.  Easy peasy!

I just couldn't help myself.  I actually finished my quilt right after putting my filler blocks together back in November.  I'm so glad I did since I am still on doctor's orders to rest my neck.  I absolutely LOVE how this quilt turned ...

CMM October Blocks from My Quilt Infatuation

We are in the home stretch, y'all!  After this month, I can't believe that we only have the snowball and flying geese filler blocks left, and then it will be time to put our quilt tops together.  With my love of all things scrappy, it is no wonder that the blocks for this month are two of my favorites in the entire quilt.

The Curved Log Cabin block is the first for this month.  The Log Cabin quilt block is one of the oldest traditional quilt blocks, and with lots of different layout options it can be used ...

CMM July Blocks from My Quilt Infatuation

We're officially halfway through the month of July friends, and that means it's time to link up your Classic Meets Modern blocks.  The two blocks for this month are ones that are extremely well known, and versions of them have been used over and over again for decades.

The first is the Bowtie block, and it is one of my favorites.  If you look at my quilt designs, you'll notice that I love quilts and blocks that have a curvy look without actually sewing curves, and the Bowtie block accomplishes this beautifully.  When the blocks are all ...

College Prep from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you're ready to kick off another awesome week.  Today's quilt on the Stash Statement blog hop is College Prep, and it's the perfect quilt to use up all of your neutral scraps.

The shades of gray, taupe, and cream combine to create such amazing texture, and it allows the giant argyle blocks to really stand out.  I quilted with a dense stipple using 50 wt. Aurifil White, and I love the added crinkle.

When I designed the quilts for the book, I wanted to show that this technique can utilize modern or ...

Introducing Mod²! from Patterns by Jen

A pretty little quilt I designed about a year ago. It sat in the graphing book until I saw one of the challenges as an Island Batik Ambassador was a modern quilt challenge. I dusted this baby off and sent it to the testers.

This version is the one I made for the challenge. I used the Blue Moon line I received from Island Batik as part of their ambassador program.

Such a fabulous line to work with. I included the layout for this quilt in the instructions, just in case anyone else wanted to step out of their comfort ...

CMM June Blocks from My Quilt Infatuation

Wow, friends!  It's June, which means that we are officially halfway through the Classic Meets Modern BOM Quilt Along, and it's the perfect time to get yourself caught up if you're a little behind (hint, hint!). This month's blocks were quick and simple to sew, and that's always a win in my book.

*ps- if you're looking for this week's NTT, you can find it HERE.

The first block for June is the X-Plus.  This block has been around since the 1930's, but has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity within the last ...

Precarious from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Monday, friends!  It's week three on the Stash Statement blog hop, and this week's quilt is one of my favorites from the book! (you know I can't resist a rainbow)  It's the Precarious quilt, and in addition to being colorful and happy, this one is also deceptively quick and easy to put together.

I love the look of the sky when a rainbow is set against dark, ominous clouds.  When the sun peeks out in one direction, but the sky is still gloomy in the other, it just feels magical.  The double rainbow in the ...

New Quilt Pattern: Lady of the Lake from Selvage Blog

Did you know that the classic Lady of the Lake quilt block originated in Vermont in 1810 and is one of the few blocks that hasn't been known by any other names? This according to "The Romance of the Patchwork Quilt in America" by Rose and Kretsinger (1935). 

See the pattern here: Lady of the Lake

This pattern shows how to make fast half-square-triangles, 8 at a time. I'm sure my readers know how to do that, but it's a real eye-opener for new quilters! 

These two throw size quilts are made with RJR's gorgeous batiks ...
