Ships & Violins Featured in Simply Moderne
The Alentejana pillow pattern is now available in Simply Modern's #26th issue!
The design is inspired by a Portuguese wool blanket known as "manta alentejana." Manta means blanket, and alentejana references the region from which these blankets were made, Alentejo. The pattern is traditionally pieced from a variety of colourful strip sets, and produces two panels (one for the front and another for the back of the pillow).
The pillow in the foreground above was pieced using Oakshott Fabrics, and the version behind it was pieced using a mix of Andover Century Solids, FreeSpirit Solids, and Makower Linen Texture. Visit Quiltmania Inc. to purchase your copy or to subscribe to the magazine.
New Pattern Available: The Badlands
The Badlands was originally published in the @themqg e-publication Modern Monthly last year. As the re-release approached, I spent some time brainstorming how to offer a couple more options that expand the colour palette.
Pictured is one of the three layouts included in the pattern. Cali Mist allows quilters an opportunity to play with a plethora of colours to create a modern and geometric landscape. The depth in this design is emphasized by the sunset's reflection on the water.
Digitally colour and plan your own version on Quilt Ink, then get piecing!
