The quilts from the book Quilting Beauties have arrived back, so I'll start to show you some of the projects. One of my very favourite pieces is a rather funky one called Arabesque. It is pieced using the Quilter's Shadow collection by Stof of Denmark, It's a beautiful fabric which functions as a solid but adds depth to the patchwork as the colours modulate across the surface. To allow the dynamic design to shine, this low-impact fabric in high contrast colours was a perfect choice.
Arabesque finishes to 14" x 36" and can be used on a table...but it's a stunning piece of art when hung.
Soft grey and white are used in the New York Beauty background sections, and a bright yellow forms the "eye".
AQS liked this piece also, and chose it to display at all their upcoming "Quilt Week" shows across the U.S. this year, which is a real honour.from my website;
