FLD26 Flash Dance Fuchsia
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 Fuchsia the deep magenta color (there is some purple too to add some depth)is clearly more bold and stands out against the black background. It is very fluid with a lot of lacy movement and very luminescent. 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.
