This is one of the 8"x10" ColorForm quilts I have made-I mount them on stretched canvas, which makes them easy to hang. I have made 8 of them-they are a nice bit of color in a dreary winter.
This ColorForm quilt is 44"H x 54"W. I wanted to make a big quilt this time, but did not want to just make something similar to the small ones, with few shapes. I used rows of square shapes, sometimes connected to each other but in other places there is white space. After looking at all my colors, I decided to use red, sometimes a hard color to use, and one I usually combine with black and grey. This time I decided to be brave and use shades of purple. I do like purple but it is hard to use it in a quilt.
As a musician and fiber artist, I see melody in color, rhythm in shape, and harmony in the stitched lines that join them. I hand dye my fabric to create my own palette of colors. These colorful, textured fabrics are cut by hand, without a ruler, and sewn by machine to create abstract art quilts based on simple shapes and unexpected colors.
