Check out these "Modern" Quilts

Ever since I finished the HST quilt this past weekend, I've been browsing around at "modern"-ish quilts.

First, it was very easy to put together and secondly, there is something strangely appealing about the simplicity of the pattern. I found a whole slew of amazing quilts.

There are dozens more out there, a lot of them more complicated than the few I show here. I really like the Celebration of the Hand by Angela, because it combines quarter square and half square triangles.


  1. Gorgeous :) It's amazing the variety of quilt patterns out there.

  2. Wow!! I so appreciate the art in your quilts...I'm more an out of the box quilter...but love your work!!! :)

  3. oh how I love the black, white and gray! So graphic and bold! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love looking at quilts online. These are all fun modern examples.

  5. I enjoy the versatility of the half square triangles, but I think I'll have to give the triangles a go - they look great. Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. Don't you just love browsing all the quilty inspiration found online? I sure appreciate all those you shared here in your post. Your HST quilt is beautiful! Love the arrangements you chose. Some look like pinwheels, some like broken dishes. And the colour combination is perfect. It has an earthy feel to it! Great job! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. There is so much inspiration out there. It's great that the internet allows us to see so much of it! Is your quilt destined for borders? I like how the light blue pops.

  8. Thanks for the mini quilt show. I particularly enjoyed the HST quilt . Great job.
