These beautiful fabrics realize the full joy potential of red and yellow.


The pattern is derived from a simple block, rotated, flipped, and combined with a lot of mirror symmetry.  I learned this design technique  from Jinny Beyer’s amazing book Designing Tessellations.


In this quilt, the unusual pattern allows me to use large patches of fabric while avoiding boredom and simplicity.
