    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!

    It is lovely! I rarely use a solid in a quilt. I prefer to use a blender or a tone on tone. Just recently, I have really had a notion to make a quilt with solids. I bought some Robert Kaufman solid Jelly rolls and am conjuring up a pattern in my mind. I really like the simpleness of the blocks with a solid color and the black sashing. You did good!!!

    I love it. I enjoy all styles of quilt -traditional and modern. I recently joined our local Modern Quilt Guilt as it is a small group and they have some great ideas. We are working on a solids challenge for March. I will try to attach a picture. My background is a chocolate brown and we were given Kona solids charm pack of brights to work with. We were allowed to add one color-I chose the chocolate. I used almost all of my charm pack and all of my colors. Had the hardest time thinking up a pattern but I was inspired by a Amy Butler patttern and then added my own twist to it. The fabric below will be my backing.

    Both of these photos are very inspirational! Another quilt to add to my ever-increasing to-do list.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    A very modern look for sure. Can't quite get attached to this look like I can the print fabrics and pieced block quilts.

    I think it's very elegant. You don't see many quilts these days done entirely in solids, but this really works. Love your colors.

    I love it. It reminds me of quilts from Quilts Made Modern by Weeks Wren and Architectural Quilts. I love the balance you were able to achieve so quickly. HMM. Shall I try?
