100 Days – Week of Blocks – Featured Quilt 5

Pinterest enthusiasts will probably recognize Erica Sage’s beautiful, graphic, A Quilt For Harry. We love this modern take on Half Square Triangle blocks and it’s our featured quilt today!

Erica blogs at Craftyblossom. Her post about making this quilt can be found here. We also asked her a couple of questions.

MQG: What do you think makes your quilt modern?

Erica: By drawing upon the trends in home decor and runway fashion, a bold and graphic approach, I created a quilt that conveys my point of view on modern aesthetics. While some modern quilts are constructed using hip designer fabrics, A Quilt for Harry gains its modernity through gradient color and unsystematic layout. I definitely think the colors of this quilt give it a modern edge; grey and yellow have been all the rage for the past few years!

MQG: What is your all-time favorite block pattern?

Erica: The simple four-patch is my favorite quilt block pattern to sew. The pattern is effortless and the results are iconic and sweet. I aim to avoid fussy patterns, making exception only for paper piecing. There are many patterns on my wish list; one in particular is Denyse Schmidt’s Single Girl, the quilts I have seen online made from that pattern are scrumptious!
