Paula Nadelstern: Virtual Trunk Show

Seeing quilts made with Paula's fabulous fabrics are a real treat, and this past fall at Quilt Market was no exception. We celebrated 20 years of Paula designing fabric and showcased a gallery of quilts made using both More is MORE and her upcoming Piece & Joy collection. Today we're sharing a closer look at a few of these quilts. 



"Stripe-Adelic" by Paula Nadelstern
"I fell in love with the Stripe-Adelic print the first time I used it in a quilt and a trove of cutting options was revealed more exciting than I’d anticipated. I could cut it randomly from left to right or symmetrically from the center out. I could attach it with fascinating results to a patch from its own colorway or to a different one. Connecting a strip of Stripe-Adelic to another fabric created fascinating results, often softening and camouflaging the seams. The result is a smooth transition from patch to patch and the illusion that there is no seam at all. This quilt is a simple Rail Fence."

"Tivoli" by Ricki Selva
This quilt pairs mandalas with fussy-cut wedges to create a design with incredible depth!

"More Fabricadabra Butterflies" by Peggy True
Based on a quilt made using Paula's Fabricadabra collection, these butterflies are made using fussy-cut sections of Fusion and Rabbit Hole for the wings, and Stripe-Adelic for the bodies. Little on-point squares of Mosaic make beautiful pieced sashing strips, and the same print is used in the border.

  1. Paula and her work have always blown me away. It is always interesting, captivating and timeless. Benartex is one lucky company to have Paula designing for them.
