Quilt 2

abstract quilt
...of 2010

This one is a keeper - as in, it's staying in my office. This pattern is a modified version of Amy Butler's Mid Mod quilt.

My quilt squares are a bit smaller than the pattern calls for (13") and there are 4 x 4 squares instead of 3 x 3. I used solid Kona Cottons in jewel tone shades to match the room they were destined for. The border is done in Kona Bone and finished in black binding with a red backing.

Perfect for cold winter nights.
Happy Sewing!

I think your version of this is actually much more beautiful than the one on Amy Butler's site.
