My Matrix Quilt

 One of the things I enjoyed most about the
Tucson Quilters Guild Quilt Show
was the wide variety
of quilts styles that were represented.
From Vintage to Modern,
I love them all.
 My Matrix Quilt
by Joline Albagh
is a wonderful representation
of the new Modern Quilts
that are surging the Market.
Quilted by Mary Vaneecke
Pattern Source: Easy Grid Quilts by Karen Fisher
 Using bright fabrics, geometric shapes, 
with an emphasis on solid colors,
Modern quilts are gaining in popularity with traditional quilters.

'Matrix Color Synergy'.  It was love at first sight.
Happily, Karen included a pattern in her book
Easy Grid Quilts
I did the applique as a take along project."
 Yes, all those little itty bitty squares were hand appliqued.
 Beautiful use of graduated color.
 I studied this quilt up close for quite a while,
enjoying the simplicity of pattern
and yet complexity of color sequencing
all mixed together.
This is a large quilt and a lot of work went into the planning.
And I see potential as a
