The next quilt was made at a Class called The Big Quilt, featuring fabrics with those large repeat design motifs (often Asian themed) and showing one way to work with them. The Class was held at my Local Quilt Shop. This particular fabric captivated me because I thought it such a beautiful floral print, but unusually executed in this coloration of brown and gray. I couldn't imagine how I'd work with it, until I saw this wonderful peach colored print that would be the perfect accompaniment.  photo P1070972.jpg Here's the Quilt  photo P1070971.jpg One of the corners for the detail  photo P1070973.jpg Then I decided to be a bit playful on the back, I'd try piecing several different fabrics. My Mother was a weaver and taught me to weave when I was a child. As I worked on piecing this backing, it began to resemble warp stripes, the (sometimes) patterned yarns on a loom during a weaving.  photo P1070975.jpg One of these prints is of coffee beans and so I titled this backing, Coffee Mocha Warp Stripes.  photo P1070977.jpg
