Modern Quilts

Projects from Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting which represent Modern Quilts.

It's no surprise that Designer Tanya Finken named this quilt Trifecta — the entire quilt is made up of triangles. It may look complicated, but it's nothing more than cutting triangles from strip sets. Digital pattern available! #FonsandPorter #white #quilt #project #stripsets

Contemporary prints are set against a white background in this modern quilt. An easy block and large background pieces make the assembly go quickly. Digital pattern available! #quilt #contemporary #art #quilting #modern

This fat-quarter friendly mock double wedding ring quilt was designed for Love of Quilting readers to make use of the new Snowball Die for the AccuQuilt Go! fabric cutter. If you're lucky enough to have this cutting system, you'll have the pieces cut in no time at all. Digital pattern and quilt kit available! #FonsandPorter #quilt #quiltblock #fabric

If you've been itching to make something out of batiks, here's a fast and easy table runner to satisfy your craving. There's no complicated piecing either– just simple seaming. Kay Berquist also made this table runner in a violet colorway. Digital pattern available! Look for Orange City Tulips in Easy Quilts Fall '14.

In Swedish, Mormor (the name of the fabric collection) means maternal grandmother. Designer Tony Jacobson chose to name this #quilt in honor of his wife's maternal grandmother who was of #Swedish descent. Digital pattern available! Look for Ode to Blanche in Easy Quilts Fall '14.

This fun quilt has curved piecing throughout. View a Sew Easy video tutorial on piecing curves. Digital pattern and video tutorial available!

And a puzzle it is! The trick to laying out the Four Patch blocks is to find the rhythm in the diagonal rows. Just be sure the browns are connected to the browns and the reds to the reds. This quilt, Four Patch Puzzle by Maria Umhey, is fat-quarter friendly.

Combine colorful strips of fabric with a crisp white to make this cheery pyramid block quilt. Use the handy Fons & Porter 60° Pyramids Ruler, or make your own triangle template. This quilt, Strippy Pyramids by Tony Jacobson, is fat-quarter friendly.

Piecing this beautiful quilt requires a bit of precision and patience, but the end result is well worth the effort-ribbons of colored curves cascade down the quilt like a rainbow waterfall. This quilt, Curvy by Mark Lipinski, is fat quarter friendly.

4-inch strips, 4-inch squares, 4-inch ... you get the idea-the power of 4 is strong in designer Tony Jacobsons straight-line quilt. Bands of blue are woven together with sand and sea color strips, creating a cohesive end result.
