Citrus Play Quilt Pattern Now Available

This past fall Curated Quilts, a quarterly magazine, posted submission guidelines for their second issue with a log cabin theme.  I don't typically work with log cabin blocks but since I had such a great time designing an entry for the Curated Quilt mini challenge I thought I'd challenge myself to design a modern log cabin baby quilt, 40" x 50".

I knew right off I wanted to mix an organic black and white stripe with the crispness of solids.  I'm still in love with yellow so I chose a retro color palette.

When I started planing out a quilting design I wanted to keep it very "mod" and at the same time I didn't want it to distract from the structure of the log cabin blocks.  In the end I quilted a tumbler-esq shape for the background singling out a few areas to fill in with quilting completely and a point to point pattern for the log cabins.

I couldn't be more thrilled to have this quilt included Curated Quilts' second issue.  If you haven't gotten your hands on a copy of either they first or second issue I highly recommend it.  The photography is beautiful, the gallery of quilts is amazing and there are great articles related to quilting as a creative outlet and art, including a very interesting article by Debbie Jeske, A Quilter's Table, with tips on how to bring that spark back to your creativity.
