Chroma II

Chroma II

Berrypatch: made with a packet of hand-dyed fabrics, adding a couple at each end of the color run. The inner border is hand appliquéd, using a print fabric that happily contained all the hand-dye colors. Hand and machine quilted. The quilt is patterned in Foundation Quilts (Hall and Haywood).

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.
