Around the Block in Yellow
This quilt is mid-century modern with pesto green and mustard yellow details. Geometric piecing offset with color blocking borders. The back is pieced as well with subtle retro bird print in soft off-white. The quilting is a free motion quilting design. 90” x 90” square--perfect for a queen-sized bed.
I made this quilt with my favorite mid-century colors. I kept in mind the perfect retro bedroom and then designed this quilt in mind. I called it around the block because the blocks feel very urban. Then, as I expanded the borders out, the blocks were accentuated and highlighted. The dusty blue and hints of subtle pink add to the vibrance of the yellow and green.
The quilt works well in a modern farmhouse, mid-century or bohemian home, even in a minimalist designed bedroom. The quality fabrics and attention to detail make it perfect for now and as a family heirloom to have for years to come.
