This quilt is traditionally pieced and is appropriate for a confident beginner. It subtly introduces transparency through the use of a light, medium and dark color structure. There’s an interesting symmetry and asymmetry relationship developed in this quilt. While the bars in the top set are symmetrical to the set at the bottom (the bottom is flipped upside down), there’s asymmetry in how each row of bars are laid out. There is also a lot of negative space to play with during the quilting phase. Quilters of all skill levels who are new to modern quilting will enjoy exploring several modern quilt principles, while experienced modern quilters can use this opportunity to work on piecing accuracy or quilting extensive negative space.
