"Fragmentation" -- dividing a patch into many smaller patches -- is a key design element of Borealis. Jinny drafted her block, Inspiration Point, into a 60" square. Then she divided each shape into smaller versions of the same shape to "fragment" the design. Careful color placement and shading creates a quilt with many glowing areas.
Borealis is featured on the cover of Jinny's book, Patchwork Portfolio, now out of print.
Completed 1990. (No pattern available.)
