A Closer Look

Sonja Shogren, Raleigh NC

Entered Gallery: November, 2013
Piece Name: On-Point
Size: 90" x 90"

This started out as a summetime store sample - and, I "fell in love" with it! The piece is based on the Kaffe Fassett Quilts "Shots And Stripes" Book, specifically the "On-Point Handkerchief Corners" piece discussed in the book. Some fabric that I used is from the Kaffe Fassett "Stripes" Collections including: Broad Stripes, Narrow Stripes, Alternating Stripes, Caterpillar, Exotic and Multi Stripes.
