Making Nested Boxes with a Pattern in Modern Quilts Illustrated

November 18, 2013

When Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr of Modern Quilt Studio asked if they could feature “Nested Boxes” in an upcoming issue of Modern Quilts Illustrated, I was a bit excited to say the least! The issue, #7, is now out and it’s an odd feeling to see something you have made in a totally different setting – the beautiful styling of the photo makes me want the want the entire room – even the healthy plant!

Nested Boxes

I have enjoyed making this quilt several times and have always leaned towards a low-contrast look in selecting the two fabrics – Bill and Weeks offer a couple of other looks in the magazine. While careful piecing is critical, once the colors are decided upon, it is all about the sewing and watching the quilt come together.  To check out the quilts/patterns featured in Issue #7 of Modern Quilts Illustrated or to subscribe, go on over to Modern Quilt Studio here.

Happy quilting!
