Three more quilts from Beyond Neutral

Let's continue on our tour of the quilts from my book, Beyond Neutral: Quilts Inspired by Nature's Elements. So far I've shown 6 of the book's 16 quilts, and today I'll reveal three more.

(ICYMI, you can catch up on previous posts here: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.)

The quilt pictured above is Glimmerglass. Eagle-eyed readers may recognize this quilt as Carousel, a quilt I designed in 2011 for Fat Quarterly. Carousel really worked well as a juvenile quilt, but when it was time to start pulling the book together I wanted to give it a new life. I brushed off the pattern and remade the quilt using Tula Pink's The Birds and the Bees line. As I suspected, the fresh fabric choices breathed new life into the quilt and allowed it to feel right at home alongside the others in the book.

This is Fallen TimbersFallen Timbers is actually another pattern reissue. It was originally published as Sanctuary in the second issue of Fat Quarterly. Again, I felt the pattern deserved an update and the quilt a refresh. Now Fallen Timbers sits comfortably in the Grass chapter of Beyond Neutral. I don't think I could love this fabric combination more.

And introducing perhaps my favorite quilt in the book, Pinnacles. It was designed to feature a large amount of negative space and to showcase a select few favorite prints. I chose a mix of Alison Glass' fabric paired with some whimsical Japanese prints, all against a stone grey. I'm so pleased with how it turned out.

As always, I am not above asking for some help. Amazon reviews really do help with book sales so, if you're enjoying the book and are so inclined, please consider leaving a review. I truly appreciate it. 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!
