Mid Century Modern Quilt- seeking ideas

One of my fabric buys this month was a layer cake of Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander. Here is what it looks like if you’re not familiar!



I adore the color palate and the minimal patterns. I really want to make a mid century modern inspired quilt.

I have looked and looked for inspiration, because I’m not really looking to do something original, but I haven’t found much that is what I have in mind.

Some pieces that inspire me are these:

I’ve sketched out a lot of variations of this grid pattern trying to flesh out what I want.

This quilt from etsy is also similar to what I’m envisioning.

I’ve also thought about going this direction, with the Sundown Quilt from Kitchen Table Quilting


I’d love to do a triangle quilt (which I’ve done before and loved) and pull the gradient out towards the ends.

Any ideas, internet???

  1. I’m less enthusiastic about the triangle quilt. I’d love to see what you could do pulling the three other ideas – etsy quilt, retro fabric from Spoonflower and that awesome quilting – together.
