This is a paper peiced pattern I bought a couple of years ago, and finished a few months ago. I used batik and hand dyed fabrics to creat him and love the way he turned out having somewhat differential shading, nature is not perfectly symetrical and like humans animals and plants are shaded uniquely.
This is my interpretation of the pattern Forever Blooming by Pearl Pereira of P3 Designs. She first offered this pattern in monthly installments before publishing it. The pattern calls for a light background, but I thought the deep navy really made the colors come out. The background is a navy batik with white spots, that reminds me of stars - hence the name Night Blooms. This quilt won Best of Show at our local quilt guild and the Oklahoma State Fair in 2015.
