Stacked by Nicole Neblett, 2015

This quilt was born of my desire to whittle down my scrap bin. I used improvisational piecing to create a background of various white, cream and tan colored fabrics and a column of "stacked" pieces of blue, green, orange, and gray. To add another element of texture, I stitched tiny boxes in the negative space to mimic the randomly stacked column of boxes. Inside the stacked boxes, I quilted straight lines back and forth to provide a cohesive element for the column.
