This quilt was made for Tilman & Tina, friends of my daughter, as their wedding gift. We found out the colours in their decor and found a pattern my daughter loved. I was actually trying for more of the mocha but the blue just insisted it be included!
The main blocks, are from Colleen Wise's book, "Casting Shadows: Creating Visual Dimension in Your Quilts". Light/dark, sunshine/shadow is one of my favourite themes - a wonderful metafor for how much brighter the good days are because of the dark days. And that together, you can get through the dark days.
Each of the 42 'shadow' squares received its own feathery design - ferns, molars, hooks, echoed, feathers. The film strip is a continuous feathered border.
