Atascadero Wall Hanging



Item details

Quilting cotton wall hanging inspired by the rolling golden hills of central California made for the book Simple Geometric Quilting.

The Atascadero Wall Hanging takes the traditional log cabin quilt block and restructures it into an unexpected pennant shape that’s perfect as a wall hanging. I pictured the Atascadero Wall Hanging in a light-filled home that exudes “California cool,” which led me to the sunny, golden hour colors, classic but modern shape and minimalist matchstick quilting.

With years of drought under its belt, the hills of California have turned from green to gold. As devastating as the lack of water in California is, the Golden State really lives up to its name, especially during golden hour. The sun lights up the hills, accentuating the yellows, caramels and golds. With the Atascadero Wall Hanging, named after a small town in Central California surrounded by rolling hills, I wanted to use the shape and colors to mimic the gentle peaks and the layers of golden sunshine on the hills.
