Jungle Ave Tapa by Michelle Wilkie, 2015

"The design was inspired from Tapa cloths that I had picked up in the Pacific Islands. Tapa cloths are a plant based geometric printed cloth usually using a limited color palette of brown, white and black.

I used the Jungle Ave Fabric line to highlight the tapa-based shapes in a modern, up beat experiment using prints.

Paper piecing was used for the center two columns,and machine pieced for the rest of the columns."
