I have a book that shows this style - I think it is called City Lights or some such. It really shows how beautiful this style of quilt can be. Someday will make one!

Very striking. How should one quilt this, in keeping with the modern style?

This was designed without preconceived pattern. I cut strips in 6", 5" and 4" and then sub cut in 6" and added the black. Put it on the wall and rearranged it to balance. I was in a rush so put it together about 4 hrs last weekend. I have made similar in batiks.

I'm still thinking how to quilt it.

It is almost Amish in it's simplicity with the black. It's beautiful. I do love solid colored fabric.

It reminds me of an old 150 year old building that I used to work in, all the tops of the windows were stained glass...very pretty!

I love it all but the lavender against the black is wonderful!
