Moody Quilt

Moody Quilt by Linda and Carl Sullivan

About this Quilt

Finished Size : 53" x 79"

Rating : Confident Beginner

Designed By : Linda and Carl Sullivan

Colored tiles appear to change their mood and personality as they float across a two-toned background in this complex looking – yet easy-to-piece – quilt. Designers Linda and Carl Sullivan created a project with sophistication and style, while making it much easier to piece than first meets the eye. They love working with color and contemporary designs while adding in their own special twist. The key to “Moody” lies in the surprisingly simple rotation of the quilt columns. Take a look… can you tell where they turn?
