My Quip – An Unnamed Classic – A New Quilt Under Construction

Good Day,

Andy and I received a commission to create a “nice” and “relaxing” quilt. The discussion was that the new quilt, possibly a lap quilt, should be a welcoming fit with a certain room’s décor. The color and fabrics were chosen and we worked on the design. In our design and construction work we are creating a sample and prototype. Our new quilt design – An Unnamed Classic.

Our new quilt design is a very simple but classic one. It is sort of an unassuming variation on a long-cabin, a woven log, and a Bonnie Scotsman pattern.

With the combination of the batiks (two) and solid color (two) fabrics An Unnamed Classic can be considered, depending upon which side of the fence one is on, either traditional or modern. I think we like to lean toward a contemporary design.

The current dimensions of An Unnamed Classic, without the border, are both width and length – 61” (155 cms).  Here are some additional images.

We are now working on the quilting design.
