Evie's Quilt Challenge Journey
Evie's style is elegant, color preference: red, gold and cream colors, she's fond of Asian design, and she's not into traditional quilting.
|I found some elegant fabrics and this Robert Kaufman's Imperial Collection, 24 inch Red Wisteria Mum Flower Garden panel which I purchased from from Hancock's of Paducah. It's lovely with suttle gold accents|
|I saw some panels that were cut and sewn back together with borders and opted for that, going for asymmetry. Now what borders and should I incorporate any actual quilt blocks?|
I found this elegant Cleopatra's fan block and wanted to use them in the quilt. One in each corner?
I preferred 3 but only on two diagonal corners.
|With black borders?|
|Or without black borders?|
I printed it out a Cleopatra's fan block pattern from here and cut each piece out and added 1/4" seam allowance.
|I just found a free Cleopatra's fan block quilt here at Robert Kaufman's website.|
