It is the Quiltdad trifecta! I have a yet another quilt that I quilted for John (Quiltdad). He blogged about it yesterday, so I decided to share my pictures today. Here’s the quilt, Urban Decay:
First of all, this quilt combines two of my favorite things, Moda Crossweave and Curious Nature (David Butler’s debut fabric line). John designed this quilt for Emily Herrick’s new book, Geared for Guys.
This quilt is so manly, it made the cover of the book.
When I was deciding how to quilt this quilt, I wanted to emphasize the deconstructed nature of the quilt pattern. So in the “complete” blocks, I quilted a design that was very structured and geometric. However in the “broken” blocks I used a variation of one of the quilting designs in my book.
A close up of a complete block:
Here’s a closer view of the bottom of the quilt:
In the sashing, I went with the same geometric theme.
I think I may have to do a tutorial on this design sometime. It’s actually quite easy, not near as complicated as it looks!
This book is available here and features 8 quilt patterns for that special guy in your life. I just so happen to have a stack of curious nature in my quilting room, I may have to whip it out and make an Urban Decay quilt for myself, after market of course!!
