“Ships September 2011”

Cotton Club Quilt Kit from Marcus Fabrics.  

Finished Quilt is 78″ x 85″.

Created around an antique border print from the mid 1800’s, along with antique coordinates in varying shades of red and brown. The rich red tones include shades of Madder and Turkey red, both commonly used in the 1800s. These are beautifully paired with brown, Bonnie Blue’s signature color, of which Paula Barnes says, “We’ve never met a brown we didn’t like and couldn’t use in a quilt!”

For the quilt’s 45 blocks, Barnes selected small, closely spaced motifs, noting that their scale would lend themselves to the 5-inch size, while shirtings were added to provide lights. The decorative border stripe is cleverly pieced in some of the blocks.
