Sunburst

, ,

La série de pièces Sunburst s’inspire d’un bloc de courtepointe appelé « sunburst ». Aussi appelé «Mariner’s Compass» ( Boussole du marin), il est un des motifs nommés les plus anciens en Amérique du Nord. On le retrouve sur un grand nombre de courtepointes anciennes de la côte atlantique. Cette étoile irradiant d’un cercle plutôt que d’un carré, donne naturellement naissance à des motifs floraux.

This serie of pieces was inspired by a simple quilt block called “sunburst”. Also known as “Mariner’s Compass”, it is one of the oldest named designs in North America. It can be found on a large number of old quilts on the Atlantic coast. The star that radiate from a circle rather than a square naturally generate floral patterns.
