Explore and celebrate the exotic shapes, colors, and textures reminiscent of an Indian Summer. While traveling through the southwest, I was inspired by the two most transformative times of the day - Dawn and Twilight.
Indian Summer is #6 in the “Whole Is Greater” series of designs by Cat Nix. What is the ‘Whole is Greater’ series about? I proudly proclaim: I’m a fabri-holic. I share the opinion of many quilters that, when it comes to fabric . . . more is definitely MORE! The more fabrics I bring into in a quilt design, the happier I become! Through the marriage of design and color, the viewer is invited to look beyond the beauty of the composition as a whole to explore the subtle nuances that lie within the quilt itself. The composition encompasses every patch, every stitch; from center to edge. Indian Summer is another stunning illustration of the “Whole” being “Greater than” the sum of its parts.
Indian Summer is composed of 1/2-Square Triangle and Fly Geese Blocks. Blocks are arranged and assembled in sections. A series of Borders finish the quilt.
A quilt is not a quilt until it's quilted. Many, many thanks Shawn Leighton for making “Indian Summer” look so good!
