I am excited to announce that Beyond Neutral: Quilts Inspired by Nature's Elements, my first book with Martingale, is finally available for purchase! I've already showed some of the interior pages from the book but wanted to start sharing some sneak peeks of the quilt projects.
One thing I haven't shared yet is how I named the quilts in the book. Since I drew my inspiration from nature for both the quilt designs and the fabric used, I felt it was only right to use that inspiration to name the quilts as well. To that end, I named every quilt in the book after a U.S. National Park or State Park!
First up is my cover girl, Pacific Crest. This quilt has been getting a lot of attention! I used Rashida Coleman-Hale's Tsuru collection and a blue background. I'll be teaching this pattern at Q First in Quilting in Lexington, Kentucky next month! Hope to see some of you there.
Here's Katmai, a quilt featuring 4 extra-large blocks that bridge traditional and modern block designs. I loved working with the organic Camp Modern collection from Birch Fabrics.
And finally, meet Raven Rock. This quilt might look familiar to those of you who've read Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe, where this quilt was first published as A Shift in Perspective. Although the book was originally intended to include 15 patterns, this quilt fit so well into the collection that I decided to reprint it as a bonus 16th pattern in the book!
