Reflecting Pools


About this Quilt

quilt-reflecting-pools-flatTriangles in two sizes and three different colorways seamlessly blend to form the unique design in Reflecting Pools by Jo Kramer and Kelli Hanken. Each section of this quilt has a diagonal set of blocks in the different colorways from the Horizon collection by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics. The diagonal patch arrangement of these blocks opens up many options for how the blocks can be set in a quilt—think Log Cabin block arrangements for setting variations. The possibilities are endless!

While this quilt is sewn in shades of teal, green and purple, any color combinations can be used, making this a wonderful stashbusting design. This would look great in Christmas, Halloween, Patriotic or any other color/fabric combination. This quilt uses one fabric for the background, but a scrappy background would add a nice twist.

Jo and Kelli are a mother/daughter designing duo from Iowa who have been combining their quilting talents for several years and have designed many quilts for our family of quilting titles.
