Even the quilt’s name—Fandango—makes you want to dance! Fandango is featured in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Quiltmaker, which should be arriving any day now. It was designed and made by Karen Griska, an interesting person who has made more than 200 quilts, all original designs. And the quilts are ever-so-interesting! They invite you in for a closer look. The ones we’ve had here in the office intrigue me day after day after day!
Karen has a great blog chock-full of ideas at selvageblog.blogspot.com. You’ll want to read our interview with Karen, too. I’ll be interested in hearing about your experience making the first few fan blocks (instructions are in the Fandango pattern). My first successful block looked like this:
- Fabric: P&B Textiles
I haven’t gotten back to this project yet, but I will. These little charmers are addictive.
