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
