Chroma IV

Chroma IV

Vinifera: made with print fabrics, using colors from the cool side of the color wheel, blues-turquoises-greens. The border has appliquéd swags in the same colors. Hand quilted. The quilt is in the collection of the Tennessee Valley Authority.

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.
