What Ulla says about her quilt:

This quilt didn't get finished for quite some time because it was so hot here over summer. Now it is finished, at last. I have wanted to use some "crazy" fabric for quite some while. Always postponed and never used. So it was a quite obvious choice to play with large patterns (as suggested in the MYoD3 chapter on pattern and textures) in small pieces of fabric.

But which formats and which size? Since I have long wanted to use a kite shape, I thought about a 1950s wallpaper. I found a solution with triangles which is simpler to piece but results in a kite pattern in the end. 

The quilt really reminds me of the 1950s, hence its name: Petticout and Rock'n Roll!
