This is part of a year-long series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. Right now, I'm working on a new version of Glam Garlands (pages 24 - 33 of Modern Patchwork). I'm using my Glam Garlands pattern, but integrating elements of Alissa Haight-Carlton's Drip Quilt from Modern Minimal. You can see my post about that here, and my post about making the blocks here.
I used the same layout as the original Glam Garlands quilt but, because these blocks don't include any of the negative space fabric, I added 1" (finished) strips of the white fabric between each column.
If you want to make a quilt top like this, you will need 2 yards of the neutral solid negative space fabric. Cut 14 strips 1-1/2" x the length (along the selvage edge) of the fabric and use the remaining fabric to cut the pieces that go at the bottom of the columns (as described on Pages 26 and 28 of Modern Patchwork). Easy!
