Black Octagon

Motif from Black Octagon Chintz Center Panel

Last April I premiered 3 Chintz Center Panels. They have been well received and I was able to add 4 more designs during the following months.

I started with a local printer who does digital ink printing on paper (for local artists from the Paradise Valley) and fabric.
Early this year I decided to do a new panel with a black background. I quickly learned it was not possible with the current process. So....I started down a long long road determined to print this exquisite panel!

I have just approved the strike off on the Black Octagon Chintz Center Panel done with dyes on sheeting. It is color fast and should be available in late May.

The quilt was probably made in the UK, c. 1820-1840. The Chintz Center Panel is appliqued on a hexagon quilt, 98" X 93".
