An explosion of love for Kaffe Fassett fabrics happened here! The quilt began with the pattern by Elizabeth Hartman called "Solar Eclipse". To me this is very southwest, and many of the Kaffe colours are too! I had so much fun playing with this design :)
In the end I didn't use the directions in the pattern, rather created HST's and sliced them to create each square (4 HST's in each block).
This was started at the Material Girls Quilt Retreat in November 2016. For the quilting, I put ribbon candy in each of the white strips and a Nemeshing-type of feathery frond in the blank white spaces inside the shapes. For the solid shapes, just followed the strips.
I love, love, love this quilt! It makes my eyes and heart happy.
And the back ...
