Chroma I

Chroma I

Made with print fabrics, with colors ranging from a light red through dark red, blues, and green. The small inset border is pieced of all the fabrics. Hand quilted. The quilt was given by the city of Durham, NC, to it’s sister city, Toyama, Japan, where it resides in the city hall.

Chroma Series - Pineapple designs, positioning analogous colors across the face of the quilt. When I look at a diagram of multiple pineapple blocks, I see “stars”, the corners where four blocks come together, in diagonal rows. If I use colors adjacent to each other on the color wheel, and fill in the connecting areas with appropriate shades, the overall effect is a diagonal colorwash.
