Artist’s Statement:
Inspiration for my medallion quilt, Egyptian Fanfare, came from one I made twenty years ago, Floral Fanfare, designed by Judy Martin for Quilters’ Newsletter Magazine. I designed the large central kaleidoscope using Paula Nadelstern’s techniques. The original flower blocks were altered to highlight the focus fabric from my original medallion. Motifs stenciled with metallic Shiva® Paint Stiks in the inner border mirror Egyptian fabric designs, as does the machine quilting. An outer border highlights a coordinating striped fabric.
