Monochrome Quilt

Introducing Monochrome

Monochrome quilt pattern by QuiltFabrication

my newest quilt design for the Cool to Be Square Blog Hop hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. Thank you again, Carol, for hosting another great themed blog hop!

This quilt was inspired by the monochrome fabric line at Connecting Threads, and a design on a neighbor's fence, though this block is a modified version of it.

Combined with another super easy block and together they make a really classy monochromatic quilt design - even a beginner could do it!

Full of grays, from blue to green to taupe and gray, I made mine in a lap size. The Monochrome quilt pattern also comes in 5 other sizes - baby, crib, twin, double, and queen - that's a lot of quilts!

With such a bold geometric design, I decided on a curvy/spiky pantograph design, Happy Times, in Glide Silver.

And look at that backing! The quilt gods were once again smiling upon me, as this almost-black squares print was just waiting in my stash for a project like this.
