Anna Maria Horner - Fan Dance - Quilt Pattern - Digital PDF
I designed this quilt to encourage you to play up the contrast between color groups of fabric. Creating
this contrast scenario began with dividing my chosen fabrics into two main groups: darker and cooler
fabrics like blues, purples, greens and grays into one group; lighter and warmer fabrics like pinks, yellows,
reads and creams into another group. I used only half of a traditional Dresden Plate for the feature
element which is somewhat reminiscent of a fan. The way that they are situated on the background
columns of the quilt gives the fans a twisting and turning efect that is stunning and full of movement.
The piecing is very straightforward and the fnal design appears much more complicated than the actual
process that brought it to life.
