Robin Pickens Style

Robin’s quilts are instantly recognizable – the signature of a true artist. I’m not sure if it is the crisp, clean lines….her color choices….or the way she explodes a block to make it new. Whatever it is it works – and here are three of her newest!

Celebrate the sunny side with Simple Solstice. Use a Charm Pack for the small Lap sized 35 x 45 inch quilt or a Layer Cake for the Twin sized 69 x 90 inch quilt. This quilt uses flying geese, half square triangles and stitch and flip corners with minimal matching of points, making it more novice-friendly. Large sun centers are good to show off bigger prints.

Forward slashes, backslashes, rectangles and half square triangles move around this lively, geometric quilt. Tell a color story, using 11 cuts of coordinating fabrics with added background sashing. You can also make this in a scrappier look using layer cake squares since pieces cut to 9.5 inches. Pattern includes sizes of Lap which uses 1/3 yard cuts, Twin using 1/2 yard cuts and Queen using 3/4 yard cuts.


This 71 inch square quilt uses half square triangles and patchwork pieces to make blocks with an added thin sashing for accents. Pattern uses a layer cake or you can use at least 24 squares sized 10 inches each. Pattern is revised and improved from earlier Fair and Square pattern.
