Cheryl #8 Challenge Orient

This convergence quilt was made with fat quarters. Being a fabric junkie, I tend to purchase things only to say “What the heck am I going to do with this?” 
Typically you would use 4 different fabrics, but I really loved the Japanese print so in using 2 fat quarters of the same print I was able to keep both the koi and the flowers.
The gray fabric reminded me of stones in a pond. Selecting the 3rd fabric to not interfere was a bit more difficult. I bought this fabric a long time ago. It’s actually white-on-white, but I was messing around with staining the fabric and soaked it in some red wine. Turns out, it was just the color I was looking for! 
The piece measures 34” x 30”


  1. This turned out just the red wine on the white fabric idea too. Great job.

  2. Love this one but then the Oriental fabrics are so nice. Did like the tip on the red wine coloring. Margaret

  3. The colours of your quilt blend perfectly, red wine was a good choice.

  4. I like this a lot! The colors just flow together.

  5. How lovely the flow of this quilt is.
    Colours blend in so well.

  6. This is a lovely piece - the bright wine red gives it a wonderful zip. very nice!
