Community Quilt 88

17 06 2013

What gorgeous colours and fabrics were in this quilt! All those rich reds, and I think some of the fabrics were heavy silks too. The backing fabric was in a deep navy/black with a Kokopelli symbol. Unfortunately, the reds just don’t come out well in the photsos.

For this quilt, I decided to do an all over design using a rich red thread. I wanted to capture the feel of the grasses in one of the fabrics, so did a sort of grassy motif, which was really just a very open version of the open headbands motif I use a lot.
