Pixels by Ashley Nickels, 2015

This bright and vibrant quilt features traditional nine-patch piecing that is taken to a fresh new level. My inspiration for the design came from the lovely hot pink and magenta flowers in my neighborhood, which I then turned into a pixelated pattern. For the quilting, I used a motif from my "Golden Gates" series, which draws quilting designs from the stunning Art Deco and Modernist iron gates found on many doorways in my San Francisco neighborhood. The diamonds and four-point stars add a textural layer to this simple yet striking design.
