It is another of the stronger ‘jewel tone’ blocks that help to form the diagonal band pattern that runs across the quilt. These colours can appear to very bright on screen, in fact a bit too bright at times, but if you could see it for real the strong colours give the quilt life.
As I have explained before this quilt is a Y2K quilt which means I used 2001 unique pieces of fabric, lace, braids, charms, buttons or ribbons. All the pieces are different. It was a way of using all the bits I had been hoarding! Needless to say these 6 inch blocks often look very crowded but then that is encrusted crazy quilting.
- Piece 1: Satin

- Piece 5: Cotton
