Los Ventos

Los Ventos

An experiment with Mariner’s Compass blocks on foundations. I kept making blocks until I ran out of the red fabric. Having decided to make this a full-sized quilt, I bought more fabric in several places, none of which matched the first batch. Hence the multiple striped and pieced inner borders, separating the fabrics. There are three different dye-lots of red, and two of the black. Hand quilted. It won in Traditional Quilts at AQS.
