#59 – Fiesta OBW Table Quilt

So, this is the Dining Room!  Did I happen to mention “I love quilts”?  Well I do, and I love them in the dining room.  I make quilts for my dining room table.  I have one Christmas and one for Summer but I needed one more.  Last year I bought some Alexander Henry Fiesta fabric in 3 color ways.  In case you didn’t know, Fiesta is dinnerware made by Homer Laughlin beginning in the 1930’s and is very collectible.  I have some of the older pieces but my collection is mostly from 1995 to present.

I made some Fiesta fabric valances for the kitchen and Dining room.

From the deep charcoal background I made a One Block Wonder (OBW) quilt for the table.

I used a repeat of the original fabric in the center of the quilt and surrounded it with OBW Hexagons.  I’m not sure how I did it, but it came out pretty nice.
