Inspiration of the month

Our second quilt in this new series on the London Modern Quilt Guilt blog is a quilt by Amanda Hohnstreiter called ‘Convergence’.


Amanda herself is a member of the Modern Quilt Guilt family but in Austin in the US and she made this quilt for a challenge by the manufacturer Riley Blake.

Her only plan was to make something that is improvised and obviously uses Riley Blake fabric which she mixed here with Kona Nightfall as background fabric.

Whilst this quilt is not large (37.5″ x 43″) it took nonetheless 10 hours of quilting as Amanda engaged in some pretty amazing matchstick quilting where the quilting lines are basically only matchstick width apart.

For this she used up to 8 different threads which gives the quilt the look of a woven object. This is a truly modern and contemporary quilt that makes excellent use of negative space and improvisational techniques.
