Nibbles Nouveau: Modern Quilt in Contemporary Fabric

jill here...Last week, April finished quilting two quilts and a table runner for us.  Marny showed you the new Flatbread with the modern print as the focus.  

We've admired Marcia Derse Fiber  and it was fun to meet her at quilt market. She has created many fabric collections for Troy Fabrics that have that hand dyed appearance.  The textures, patterns and colors are exciting and contemporary.

We chose 10 fat quarters in a variety of color and textures.
We aimed for different values and colors in blue, red violet, gold with a punch of chartreuse.
Note the aqua stripe: attention seeking by virtue of  its light value and bold pattern.

The background of misty taupe acts a perfect backdrop
to feature the square pops of color,
repeated in the inner border and binding

The pantograph is named "Geometric Squares".
It's a great combination of soft edged squares
with just a little central curve to create the rhythm.
Ah, the back:  I'll call it "Out of Square".

Just need some time to sit and relax!
Certainly don't need the quilt to keep  warm.....
until winter arrives.

'Till next Tuesday.....
