Inspired by the novel Chocolat by Joanne Harris, this quilt was designed to resemble the window display of a chocolaterie. Traditional Baby Blocks form a pyramid of candy with the shop's name rendered in type and calligraphy doing double duty as it also advertises the luscious hand dyes used to create the scene. Machine pieced and hand appliqued. Heavy trapunto suggests the hearts embossed on chocolate boxes.
Fabric featured: Ultra sateen, multicolor

One great use for shibori can be found in the water. Another can be found in the planks of wood used in the ark, where the brown shibori was cut up and artistically pieced. The border uses an ultra sateen blend that goes from golden brown to dark brown. It was cut into strips and the two dark edges were seamed together with the two light edges creating a beautiful glow.

This fairy tale quilt displays many of my fabric dyeing techniques which are actually marked on the image. The spinning wheel is crackled and grayed out, retaining portions of the colors of the sky. The castle is made using crackle, and several different wrinkle-crinkle fabrics are used for the roses to show texture and multi-dimension. The castle door is metallic.

When creating landscape quilts, the further away an object is, the less intense color it has and it becomes grayed-out. Objects in the foreground should have cleaner, more intense color as Lynda demonstrates in this wonderful quilt.
