Today’s featured quilt is Aima’s version of Susan Beal’s Modern Crosses pattern from the book Modern Log Cabin Quilting.
You can see more of Aima’s beautiful work in her Flickr Photostream. We also asked her a couple of questions.
MQG: What do you think makes your quilt modern?
Aima: I think the choice of fabrics is what makes this quilt modern, more so than the pattern. I fell in love with the Pick a Bunch range of fabrics by Nancy Mims the first time I saw it. The colours are vibrant and have that special something. There was no fabric in the range which I did not like.
MQG: What is your all-time favorite block pattern?
Aima: The log-cabin; it is so versatile and with careful choice of fabrics (colour and intensity) you can achieve very different effects. It is also very easy to put together and lends itself to chain piecing (which speeded up the process for me making this quilt).
