Are you looking for a challenging project that incorporates a variety of high impact and low volume prints? Look no further than Cassandra Ireland Beaver’s “Raise the Roof” quilt. This paper-pieced masterpiece was inspired by the rafters and oversized ceiling fans found in the Horticulture Building at the Ohio State Fair.  What a cool inspiration source for this gorgeous quilt!

When we saw this piece in person our editorial team gathered around and admired the texture created by the intricate stitching atop the seemingly dimensional shapes. Cassandra masterfully created organic free-motion quilting to reflect the plants that must have been displayed within the exhibition hall beneath the ceiling fans.
