When I created the pattern it was because of that exactly I loved plus quilts but I wanted something different.

Nice pattern in one of my favorite color combos! I like asymmetrical layouts - they look so modern.

Love the look of this quilt. Having boys I'm always on the lookout for "non-feminine" quilts.

I love this pattern! Do you remember what the finished dimensions of your pillow/pillow case were? Are the squares smaller than on the quilt? I am new to quilting and would love to try this project.

I did not make the pillow case (But was made from my pattern) It was made by a guild member of mine in the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild. I believe they are 1 inch finished squares rather then the 2 inch finished squares like my pattern. She also cut off the bottom of the pattern to make it square.

This quitl is very striking. I would like to make it bed-sized for one of my nephews. I would pick blues, though I'm not sure what I would do with the background.
