This quilt has only two different blocks in it and with the applique construction technique that is explained and illustrated in the pattern, the curved seams are a snap! It is basically a scrap quilt using "reads-as-solids" and focusing on one colorful commercial print that pulls it all together. The points and the border are all paper-pieced and the illusion of 3 dimension comes from the use of specific values in the right places. There are several variations and colorways included if you want to make more than one "Beauty". Fabric and color choices are  explained along with cutting and piecing directions. This is a queen-size quilt. It comes with the Masters of the foundation blocks on heavier paper. They copy out on 8.5 by 11" paper. Mediterranean Beauty is an award-winning quilt, including a Minnesota Quilter's Best of Show, a third at IQA Houston and an AQS Judge's Choice.

An original Claudia Clark Myers design.
