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!
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!
