Paradox Point in Tonga Jamboree November 19 2016, 0 Comments
Happy Saturday! We are kicking the weekend off with this batik beauty sewn by one of our good friends, Gitte Hopkins. This cool color scheme of this Paradox Point makes me swoon and these rich batiks - oh my! Gitte had a blast sewing this quilt and even made some special piped binding as a finishing touch!
This quilt was made with two different precut packs from Timeless Treasures' Jamboree collection - one Tonga Treat Quarters and one Tonga Treat 6-pack. Gitte paired two fabrics, one from each pack, with the lime accent to make each arrow block. For specific skus, check out the Paradox Point Info page.
I love how the light bounces across this quilt and the lime accent intensifies all the other batiks. Tonga Jamboree contains a variety of prints ranging from lime green to aqua, to teal, to blue, to periwinkle, to violet.
This block is one of my favorites! I love getting design input from my family and when I got a sketch of a triangle containing small arrows from my little sister and mom, I couldn't resist! It really does take a village! The pairing of the lime and the violet prints creates some vibrant arrows!
Juli did the same amazing quilting on this quilt as she did on her Moda version and with the lighter and less printed background you can really see it. I love, love, love the quilting technique she did in the background. It adds some movement to the quilt that appears to flow behind the arrow blocks.
