Modern Mountains Quilt: Create a Pieced Landscape

With the Modern Mountains Quilt Krista Fleckenstein shows you how to cut strip-pieced blocks at wonky angles to give the mountains a bold, contemporary look.

About this Quilt

Finished Size : 31" × 33" (79 × 84 cm)

Designed By : Krista Fleckenstein

Krista designed the Modern Mountains Quilt for her husband, Rob, who loves to hike and ski on the trails of the Chugach Mountains near their home in Alaska. This quilt showcases the simple beauty of those mountains. The shot cottons (woven fabrics that have two different colors in the warp and weft) that are used echo the subtle color differences that exist in nature. Bring your favorite mountains to life yourself with this modern quilt pattern.
