Shadow work is a known and loved heirloom quilting technique that is created by overlaying brightly-colored appliqués with a sheer piece of batiste, creating a more muted or washed effect. Now, we’ve revamped this traditional technique to use organza instead of the batiste, giving these blocks a beautiful wash of color!
Our newest shadow work collection, Organza Garden, features floral designs that are sure to dazzle. Colorful abstract shapes sit behind these linework florals, and the combination of art styles results in a unique look reminiscent of modern art. This unique twist on traditional shadow work depicts each botanical drawing with bright pops of color under a layer of white organza, creating a vibrant but calming watercolor effect.
With both square and rectangular quilt blocks in 6 sizes each, you’ll be able to create this masterpiece in any configuration, or even mix it with another floral favorite.
