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”
