Vinas Viejas

Vinas Viejas

This latest in my Chroma series of working with color gradations was inspired by a group of Cherrywood sueded hand-dyed fabrics called "Grapevine". I added more shades until I had 14, to create the off-center Barn Raising design, made with the traditional Pineapple block. The border is crazy-patched, using several dye-lots of the same background color, and the grapeleaves are hand-appliqued. I named it Viñas Viejas (Old Vines) to commemorate the wonderful wines made with old vines, especially those from Spain.
