Robyn Croft is the maker of this colorful quilt called City Lights. The use of different grays as the negative space along with wonderfully bright hand dyed fabrics make for such a lively quilt.
Robyn doesn’t have a blog (yet!) and is a member of the Auckland Modern Quilt Guild. She took some time to answer a few questions for us.
1) What’s your favorite thing about improvisational piecing?
I love improvisational piecing because the freedom of constraints makes it fun and the results are always unique to the quilter/artist.
2) What do you think makes this quilt modern?
The simple lines of the design, the simplistic quilting and the freshness of the colours.
3) What inspired this quilt?
The Modern BOM was the inspiration for this quilt. To add my own spin I used some pre-constucted fabric I had on hand instead of printed fabric, varied the grey background to give a more interesting look, and free-cut the pieces.
