Quilt sampler – inspiration

My guild (Gainesville Modern Quilters) has a chance to exhibit our modern quilts at a local college, and I want to make something a little outside of my usual style. I’ve been playing around with a palette of teal and salmon, but hadn’t quite hit upon a design that was interesting but still simple enough. Then, I was browsing around pinterest (I could go on about why I love pinterest, but I’ll save that for another time) and I came across this photo of pillows from London textile designer Naomi Paul. All those lovely blues and touches of peach — I found the perfect design. I love the limited palette and the traditional quilt motifs. I’m planning to make nine blocks with blues, bone, salmon and coral (of course!) with Kona snow between.
