Kaufman's "Chasing the Rainbow"
I wanted swirls of color in 'Pentatonic,' but I didn't want to attempt using different fabrics in different areas. Instead, I spotted these two Kaufman fabrics. They have irregular color blotches, which means the cut diamonds (the fat ones in this pattern) will be gently variegated. Once cut, I can sort them roughly by color, and get my desired effect.
My intent is to have the skinny diamonds be solid black, to both contrast these fabrics and fade into the background. I want the pattern of the tiling to be center stage on this quilt.
