We are kicking off another quilt pattern series today with our first pattern - Perfect Placement Quilt. In this series I want to study some of the basic principles that guide Scandinavian Interior Design. I love Scandinavian design and I feel like it ties closely with my personal style so I wanted to explore it a little more with a quilt pattern series.
Scandinavian design is very thoughtful. Everything in the home either has a purpose or provides some kind of inspiration. They are intentional about their selections and how the furniture/accessories are used throughout each space. Everything has the perfect placement.
Since everything is intentional, there isn't much space left for clutter. Just like this quilt pattern which is pretty minimal. The entire quilt pattern is created using only two blocks. Depending on how the blocks are rotated - a dynamic pattern is formed. There is a simple repeat that creates a visual impact.
I love this crib size (pictured above). I have been hoarding this backing for a while. When I came up with the idea for this series I knew I wanted it to make an appearance. I love the hand-stamped look and the pop of color it adds to the quilt.
All the cover versions for this series will be composed of neutrals. Using grey, black and white as a color palette means these quilts will fit in any room of my house. This version is available as a kit from Rosie Girl Quilting.
