Modern Style Quilt, hand and machine quilted 2014

I used batiks from my collection
 I saw these blocks in a quilt but much smaller. I worked out the bigger size I wanted and cut them out and pieced them together. There is no border. I machine quilted and hand quilted it for the effect. Ripple, sparkle, textured.
Two blocks make up this quilt

I used two different shades of white for the effect

I call it Garnet Beach

What a gorgeous quilt - the background colour really sets off the the small squares, and your wuilting adds such beautiful texture. Modern quilts are growing on me, and it seems the simplest of shapes are what really appeal - I love yours!
