Step Out of the Box - a Contemporary Quilt!

I was given some fabric from Blank Quilting's new line, Regency, toplay with. I had about 1/4 yd. of each fabric in the line.
The fabric is in beautiful shades of black to gray. There is a really nice border print you can see below that I didn't use in this quilt. I think it would make a gorgeous border if I had more than a small piece.


This line had fabrics in a gradation from dark to light. 
I cut  squares of each and laid them out in rows that formed the gradation I wanted.  I sewed squares into rows, and rows into my quilt top. I actually worked from dark to light and then turned the top on it's side. (It was easier to keep up with the gradation that way.)
.
I then had a top with a gradation of dark to light. 
I was ready to add color inserts, appliqued circles, and fusible words!


If you're interested in this pattern, it's available in my Craftsy store (The button on my side bar will take you there.). It's an easy design and the colors you add can fit your tastes. A chart is given that shows where each fabric goes, and there is a guide for placing the circles and strips.
 
You will want to check out Blank Quilting's website and Facebook page to see what else they have to offer
