A page from the new edition of Generation Q magazine highlighting quilt design ‘Modern Chain’ by Anita Peluso

Here are a couple of fun quilts featured in some recent editions of quilt magazines by Anita Peluso.  You may remember Anita from the AMB Blog Tour— this talented local quilt designer represented the state of Washington!  If you’re not familiar with Anita’s marvelous work, do check out her blog Bloomin’ Workshop, where she frequently posts about new projects and her inspiration.  Her clean aesthetic combined with her eye for detail really shine through in her work!  Featured in the November/ December 2014 edition of Generation Q Magazine is a modernly pleasing take on a chain quilt, aptly named ‘Modern Chain’.

‘Modern Chain’ by Anita Peluso has pieces together elements of minimalism and distinctively graphic design.  The use of neutral shades and pops of bright color found in the color pallet of American Made Brand solids by Clothworks work very well together in this gorgeous design!

Spotted in the Fall 2014 edition of Fons & Porter’s Quilting Quickly is another stunning Anita Peluso design called Crossed Paths’.  Another chain-pieced quilt pattern, this traditional-meets-modern quilt uses prints from the Vienna Garden collection by Skipping Stones Studio, released by Clothworks.
