This pattern has been in my "want to do" queue for a while, and this seemed like a good time to do it.
The name "Antipodes" means "places diametrically opposite to each other on the globe." To me, this pattern has that same look. Indeed, by following the instructions in the pattern (from Toad-U-Sew Patterns), each pieced square is then re-cut and resewn so that it forms two oppositely-hued squares.
Does it look like a reflection? Or rain? Or a waterfall? What would you call it?
This beautiful quilt has found a home in Houston, Texas!
NOTE: This quilt, along with a number of my other quilts, will be on display during the month of May in the Patty Turner Senior Center in Deerfield. If you're in the neighborhood, stop in and see them in person!
