This is Cindy’s Cleopatra’s Fan quilt and when I was searching online for quilting ideas I found it as a kit on the Craftsy website here. It was the only quilt I found for inspiration and Cindy said she felt it was quilted to heavy to her taste so I kept my quilting designs on the lighter side. I had never seen this pattern before so was very excited to quilt this one as the blocks have a very unique shape to them.
This metallic fabric collection is by Robert Kaufman and called Beau Monde. I quilted all the blocks the same with Magnifico #2063 gold thread that matched the gold in the fabrics. Since the block have two fabrics and the light and dark alternate you can either see the leaf swirl design or the feather designs.
I then quilted simple swirls in the background with white So Fine thread. I used Quilters Dream Blend batting and a light beige So Fine thread on the back.
Now I’ll have to pack up this beauty and sent it back to Cindy in California!
