What started as an exercise to compare pairs of complementary colours (those opposite each other on the colour wheel) and the impact of varying amounts of each colour became a small wall quilt which I'm really happy with.
The impetus to get it finished was the South Coast and Country Quilters' Guild show which I had entered it in - so, for once a deadline......
|Pairs of complementary colours from my earlier hand dyed fabric.|
I quilted it using straight lines a quarter of an inch apart. I had considered straight line quilting but after watching a Craftsy class with Jacquie Gering (Quilting with a Walking Foot) the idea was confirmed, ultimately creating a modern look I think.
The back was cobbled together with some of the less successful fabrics - but they seemed to work - and a hanging sleeve as required........
Another small abstract pieced together as I went along until it felt balanced.
I then quilted it with another of Jacquie Gering's straight line techniques using two focal points, which again I was very happy with.
