Pattern Launch - Fractal Radiance

Hello KCMQGers! The long awaited pattern launch day is finally upon us! We are so excited to present this pattern set: Fractal Radiance by Katie Larson for the KCMQG!



We asked Katie to tell us about her experience creating the quilt pattern and this is what she had to say:
This pattern originally started as a pillow I made for my friend Lindsay who likes bold colors and patterns. I liked the way it turned out so much that I decided to enlarge it as a small quilt for myself. It was a challenge to determine how to accurately cut out the large triangles, but I think I came up with a method that works well and isn’t too complicated. I love that it’s simple yet dynamic, and because there aren’t a lot of pieces, it goes together fairly quick. 
I was so excited to find out this design was chosen to become a pattern, and have learned a lot in the process. I hope you enjoy the pattern, and can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Here's the pillow that started Katie's process.

And the small quilt that resulted from it:

G: Ice Frappe #1173
H: Turquoise #1376
I: Crocus #142
J: Jade Green #1183

We think this design is so innovative and can't wait to get our hands on it! How about you?
