Shades of Gray

Shades of Gray

32 x 45 inches ©2013

Artist Statement:  Squares and strips of bright color dance across a monochromatic background of white, black and shades of gray.

I had a lot of fun designing this quilt.  I didn’t have a sketch or plan – just an idea in my head.  I inserted strips and squares into the background colors until I had blocks approximately 10 x 10 inches square.  Then I arranged the blocks on the design wall, and added more fabrics to fill in the blank areas.

Techniques:  improv piecing, machine-pieced, machine-quilted

Awards: 

3rd place in the Modern category - 2015 Quilt & Fiber Arts Festival – La Conner Quilt & Textile Museum

2nd place in the Modern category - 2014 Canadian Quilters Association National Juried Quilt Show
