Chroma VI

Chroma VI

Nebula: made with Cherrywood sueded hand-dyed fabrics, using 14 colors, from dark navy blue to gold. The colors were arranged in a Barn-raising set, and the hand and machine quilting done to enhance that design. The quilt was shown on the cover of QNM.

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.
