  1. I love this!!! I made something similar this past summer with Indian Summer. It was just a coincidence that the pattern came about after I cut up the squares. I didn't know it was called Ikat. I love the design!!!!

  4. Wow! Those colors are striking! I never would have thought I'd find so much to like about paper piecing, but those are really pretty.

    1. Sure! Ikat actually refers to a way to dye fabric. Lately ikat fabrics or reproductions have been popular, and I've seen many that have a nested diamonds design. This design reminds me of the same look!
