Yesterday is a modern interpretation on a classic quilt block dating back to the late 1800’s, the “double hour glass” block which is also sometimes referred to as the “wondering lover” block. The quilt measures about 65" x 65".
I "modernized" the blocks by enlarging the block so that the block became the entire quilt top. For my version of Yesterday, I used Kona Cotton Solids in White and Black by Robert Kaufman.
I decided to quilt all of the white areas of the quilt in a 1 inch grid and quilted the black triangles in a dense back and forth pattern. I made some ghost white triangles in the background mirroring the black triangles. There was a lot of marking and thread burying in this quilt. I used 50 wt. cotton Aurifil thread in white and black.
I love the Make Modern magazine, the magazine is so full of great quilts and inspiration. There are 14 projects in this issue as well as other features and articles. Check out Make Modern Issue 4!
