I wanted my quilt to have a 1920's feel. (Art Nouveau Style) I found a book at a rummage sale titled Mandala Quilt Designs by Katie Pasquini. It was exactly what I was looking for! It took 5 attempts to get the design right with the fabrics. I kept changing them out! (A lot of seam ripper use!) It was a challenge, but I really like the end result. My quilt is a tribute to Hoffman California Woolens complete with swatches of coat samples!
