Over The Rainbow

This wonderful grandmother's fan quilt by Christine Mahon was displayed at last year's Quilt Arizona show.  What an excellent use of batiks! The brightly-colored fabrics make the fans stand out amidst the neutral background.

Over The Rainbow by Christine Mahon, quilted by Debbie Stanton

Christine Mahon used her collection of more than 50 batiks to make this quilt, which was entered in the Scrap - Duet category at the the 2020 Quilt Arizona show.  Christine says, "Precise cutting and sewing made the rainbows (fans) work." The brightest blues, yellows, and reds provide good contrast with the more muted hues and with the ivory background.  The fluted edge of the quilt is a great way to echo the shapes of the quarter-circle fans.

We were also impressed with Debbie Stanton's professional longarm quilting, which you can see in the closeup photos above and below.
