Indigo Lights

Indigo Lights

The cover quilt for my book, The Experts’ Guide to Foundation Piecing (C&T Publshing, 2006)
The quilt design was inspired by a quilt in the Shelburne Museum, made in bright silks. The block is half Log Cabin and half Pineapple, which creates wonderful balls of color when multiple blocks are joined. I used batiks and a variety of beige prints for the Log Cabin sections, and an indigo batik for the Pineapple sections. String border, pieced on freezer paper, using the beige fabrics from the quilt. Hand and machine quilted.
