Radiant Gold

Radiating is the word that came to me when I started thinking about this block. Our challenge color just says "sunshine" to me!

Lots of fun (and crazy) interpretations floated through my head between now and then, but when I sat down to work, I decided to also use Helen-inspired strips and a bit of simplicity. I debated about "wonkiness", but as I chose symmetry instead. It started to feel like an art deco decorative arch topper.

I really like art deco design and wasn't sure I wanted to trim it down, but she is.

Hubster says it looks like a sunrise. Hooray, radiance!


  1. Gorgeous! I can't wait to see this quilt come together. :-)

  3. Magnificent! Have you thought of expanding this in a quilt of your own?
