One of the things I like about going to a quilt show or to a quilt class is to see how different quilters interpret a quilt pattern with different colours. Here's a couple examples from the recent Festival of Quilts at Heritage Park in Calgary:
|Florals with Black Paths|
Here in this floral quilt, the multi-coloured flowers blend together and the black paths stand out.
The clean, clear white background on this pastel version makes the ladders stand out.
|A modern pattern done in blue, yellow and gray|
This great pattern has lots of movement, both from the blocks and the secondary pattern when those blocks are joined together.
|Traditional colours, modern pattern|
Again, a totally different look to this quilt with different colour choices!
I saw those quilts too! Inside one of the tents they had several quilts displayed side by side that were the same pattern, but different colors. Did you see those?ReplyDelete
