A painted Italian terracotta plaque circa 4th century BC inspired Fandango. One of the oldest ornamental motifs is the palmette—also known as a fan. Interpreted in lively colors, the fan shapes prompted the name Fandango meaning “go & dance”.

The quilt is made of 16 blocks with fan & scroll shapes surrounded by a scroll border. Although each block construction is identical, the placement of color determines the overall design.
