Under the fig tree
I finished this quilt last year and gave it this name of Folklore because many of my scraps were coming from a line of fabrics called Folklore. I selected those rather strong colors to make a dramatic effect, which is quite unusual for me, as in general I prefer soft tunes. I was influenced by a picture found in an old magazine : Country Quilts of Fall 2005 and I used their pattern.
The pattern names of the blocks are Puss In The Corner and Stepping Stars.
The quilt size is 63" x 75". (1m60 x 1m90).
As I said before, I was not used to work with such strong tunes and the consequence was that, once finished, I folded my Folklore quilt and put it straight in a cupboard. I did not look at it for a whole year! But when I "re-discovered" it this autumn, I fell in love with it!!! I find those cheerfull and warm colors so attractive and I think it makes a perfect decoration for fall. Everybody can now admire it in my lounge!
Have a beautiful Sunday!
Bon dimanche a toutes!
