I’m thrilled to introduce a brand new quilt to you today! It’s called Interlinked and was a design I came up with a couple years ago when playing around with some modern design ideas.
I love making all kinds of quilts and most of my designs fall on the “Modern Traditional” side of things. But with Interlinked, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and really embrace modern principles like “minimalism” and “negative space.”
Interlinked Beauty Shots
I’ve also been having fun taking some styled shots of my quilts. there’s something about surrounding a stark neutral quilt with some earthy color that makes it pop, don’t you think?
The most fun part about making this quilt was combining white and gray prints from several of my fabric lines. After releasing my first fabric line, Modern Marks back in 2017, I realized I needed to add more backgrounds and neutrals to work with in each of my succeeding lines. So this one includes white & gray from Fandangle, Geo Pop and my newest line, Gridwork.
I used the white/gray “Mosaic Dots” print from Geo Pop for the backing.
Get the Kit!
When I shared sneak peeks of me making this quilt a few months ago, I immediately got requests for kits once the pattern was available. So I’m happy to announce that kits are now in stock and ready to ship over in my online store at shop.ChristaQuilts.com.
The pattern can be found in issue #34 issue of Make Modern Magazine, a PDF publication from my friends down under in Australia! You can purchase single issues, or a fabulous all access subscription that includes ALL back issues. (I actually have been published in their magazine at least twice before – so it will be a fun scavenger hunt to find my previous patterns!!)
The quilt is actually really quick and easy to make and you can have fun with the quilting just like I did. I quilted a different geometric design in each fabric of the quilt and it was so fun putting this one together. It’s the first time I’ve made a quilt from my fabrics where I’ve used more than one collection and I really enjoyed the freedom of doing that!
