Even more photos from Beyond Neutral

Quiet week here, so I thought I'd take another opportunity to share some more images from my book, Beyond Neutral: Quilts Inspired by Nature's Elements.

This first one is called Cape Lookout, and it was inspired by the view of sunrises and sunsets over the water. As you can tell by the photo, it's an easy quilt to piece together and a great showcase for your favorite collection of gradient prints.

With Canyonlands, I took a free block pattern that I had designed for Generation Q magazine's blog a few years back (Modern Starlings, found here.) As soon as I designed the block I envisioned an entire quilt of starlings, and was finally able to realize it in my book.

Today's third quilt is called Half Moon Bay, and in it I used my long-hoarded (and much-loved) collection of Cake Rock Beach fabric. I love the graphic nature of this quilt and think that, with different colors and prints, the pattern can be taken in so many different directions.

I hope you're all enjoying the book. If you've been able to browse through a copy and are so inclined, I always appreciate Amazon reviews of the book. And if you've made anything from Beyond Neutral, please send me photos of your quilt tops. I'd love to feature them in future posts!

  1. Oh my gosh, Cape Lookout is absolutely gorgeous! I love the PB&J prints in it, too. Thank for tempting me to add another book to my stash as well...

  2. Bought the book yesterday :)

  3. Cape Lookout is astounding! I'm almost curious how it would look with the opposite colors having the smaller/larger pieces switched... so the blue would look more "water/ocean"-like... the possibilities! Great job!

  4. La ragione popolarità di ristorante milano è che essi presentano i pasti nel modo più fantasioso e creativo possibile. Ogni piatto è come un'opera d'arte per chef italiani. Sono gli unici ristoranti che producono le pizze da 20 pollici, che hanno respirato varie verdure diverse, frutti di mare, le spezie e carni che non si sarebbe nemmeno pensare di combinare.
