FLD55 Flash Dance Blue
The Flash Dance collection, Paula Nadelstern's newest line, would be considered coordinates to the Kismet collection. This line offers a new dimension to Paula's collection. There are a total of 9 different Flash Dance colors. Each are bilaterally symmetrical and the motifs are not outlined in black. |
In Flash Dance you'll find tones of cobalt blue from light to dark with a bit of white added as highlights. This piece almost has a reads-like-a-solid quality to it because of its cobalt blue coloring. It is very fluid with a lot of lacy movement with a luminescent quality to it. Certainly would look stunning to offset any kaleidoscope design or add another entire dimension to a kaleidoscope design.
Paula says this mirror-imaged pattern reads as an intricate design with lots of potential to create unpredictable, visually active pathways. Use it to create imaginative sashing, with or without cornerstones. For cornerstones, consider a square of Dragonettes. If you don't already have her book, FABRICADABRA: Simple Quilts, Complex Fabric, on Page 81 you will find some illustrated suggestions.
The repeat is 12" along the selvage of the fabric and you will get at least 3 motifs from selvage to selvage. A yard will give you a minimum 8 repeats, maybe as little as 3/4 yard.
