Modern Print Monday: Art Deco Berlin

Berlin from my new Modernism collection for Moda.

In this Modernism group I wanted an Art-Deco-style piece
with the concentric geometric lines characteristic of that
art movement.

I had this swatch, which I'd
removed from an old Dresden Plate block.
Quite Art Deco.

Here it is in Cafe Brown.
I named it Berlin because it seemed so Bauhaus in the
emphasis on squares and circles.

Look for it in December.


  1. Ooh, I'm liking this!! Looks fab in the red!

  2. I like the design, and it occurs to me it wouldn't be all that out of place in a Civil War block.
