Pickled Beets by Latifah Saafir, 2015

I love the classic shapes found in traditional quilts. Pickled Beets was inspired by the triangles that are captured in curves found in some Pickle Dish quilts. This large arcs of this quilt were drafted in Illustrator and then the paper piecing templates were printed on large engineering prints. This color and layout of this quilt was inspired by the modern Indah batiks and hand dyed solids by Me + You. The name Pickled Beets is a play on the word "pickle" from the Pickle Dish quilts that inspired it.
