Natural Cadence Quilt

Path 3
Path 2


Natural Cadence explores a rise and fall in the peaks and valleys of very basic patchwork squares set on point. All of the interest comes by way of color choice, an irregular edge and vintage charm via applique. The quilt alternates between 16” log cabin blocks and whole feature blocks. The color arrangement is balanced in symmetry and in value for a striking effect. You could easily replace the solid fabrics with more prints or replace the whole fabric blocks with more favorite patchwork. The flower and butterfly appliques come together at four way block intersections and each finish with a circle or oval in the center. Mitered corners created from a print that cheats strip piecing, offer a nice framing that could as easily be achieved from a more basic striped fabric.
