Paradox Point in Kaffe Fassett November 20 2016, 0 Comments
And last but not least, here is the show-stopping version Kristy made in Kaffe Fassett fabrics! One of our favorite things to do with patterns is see how they play with different styles. I think Paradox Point looks great in just about everything! We have 4 very different versions - one rainbow with solids, one featuring a fabric line, one cool colored batik quilt and this warm one with lots of large prints! Each has it's own flare and beauty.
This version gradates through the warm colors of the rainbow, beginning with yellows and ending with magentas. Each block uses a large print for color A, a bright dot for color B and an aqua solid for the accent. For specific skus, refer to our Paradox Point Info page.
Here is a little bit from the maker herself. "I was super excited to work with Kaffe Fassett fabrics to make my version of our Paradox Point quilt. I decided on a warm palette of yellows, golds, oranges, reds, pinks and magentas. I went to the opposite side of the color wheel and chose a turquoise for my accent. I love how much contrast it has in my blocks. My background is a solid medium gray. Each block has a medium dot and a large print. Using large prints look amazing in the arrows and give the fabrics a whole different look!" -Kristy

"Because time was ticking, I kept the quilting simple putting serpentine lines in the arrows and quilting straight lines and swirls in the background. I love how the simplicity of the quilting plays well with the modern vibe of the quilt!" -Kristy
I love the photos Kristy took of this quilt! She got out the skinny doors we painted to use as a backdrop, but I have to tell you, this quilt is too big for those! Next she took the quilt up the block and draped it over some construction barriers. The red diagonal stripes play with the warm tones of the quilt really well!
The Paradox Point quilt pattern is available in book form. If you make this or any other Sassafras Lane project, we would love to see it! Send us photos, post them to our Flickr group or use our #sassafraslane hashtag on Instagram! Tomorrow we will share the fun pyramid pillows we made with a few Paradox Point blocks!
