Eventide simply means evening in Old English. Such a poetic word for that time of day when the transition from light to dark casts a mysterious glow over the world. I have been fascinated with illustrating that transition for some time. I feel as if I'm painting with fabric while still using traditional piecing techniques.
Eventide is a throw size quilt. At first glance, it looks complicated and difficult to construct. It is not a beginner project but it is not that difficult either. No Y seams, just diagonal rows and a well protected design wall. Mix the textiles or use all cotton. The transition from light to dark is always dramatic.
