I was going through old pictures & couldn’t believe I never shared this beautiful quilt with ya’ll!
This was a donation quilt for Quilts from the Bluffs
a few years ago, pieced by one of their members & that I quilted.
Since the fabrics reminded me of a reproduction look, I wanted to use a classic quilting pattern to bring justice to the quilt. The Baptist Fan pattern was the perfect choice!
I love how it adds a nice subtle background texture, yet doesn’t distract from the overall design. In fact, the clam shells help add an element of movement that works with the diagonal stripes.
The Baptist Fan pattern is one of my all time favorites- it’s classic, simple & elegant. What more could we ask from a design?
