As I was walked around taking pictures at the
IQF Long Beach Show
I heard a group of women
ooohing and aaahing over
by Timma Tarr
South Hadley, Massachusetts
"This is a Happy Quilt!" one exclaimed.
The others enthusiastically chimed in
'a connected series of related things'
This quilt is my interpretation of an
Endless Chain quilt from the 1940's
that belongs to my mom.
That quilt is full of fabrics on a white background
and has yellow centers.
I kept the yellow circles, but changed the colors
of the blocks so that they are connected and not random.
The pattern for the blocks can be found in the
Dec/Jan 2013 issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine."
I personally was especially drawn to
Catena, because I have a
work in progress
of the very same design.
*I'm in the midst of hand appliqueing
all of the circle centers :)
Another reason I love
Timma's design is
her use of Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
Love those Kaffes!
