July 2014 Quilts

July Quilts ::  I’ve been playing with colour this month

“The main thing is to have a go at trying out colours, the wilder the better. None of us designers really know what works until we see it, so sampling becomes wonderfully exciting as you stumble on really unpredictable and interesting colouring.”
Kaffe Fassett

Nine quilts completed this month!

Love Nest

Such a beautiful combination of reds and aqua shades with bright whites and subtle taupe.

There are little birds nesting in the trees - that's why I called it Love Nest!

Mazurka

Why Mazurka?  Well, one of my favourite composers is Chopin – famous for his traditional Polish mazurkas.  The dances tend to have repetition on a traditional theme with rhythmic patterns.  Just what I thought of when I created this quilt.  Traditional pattern (log cabin), lots of repetition and a stylised pattern.  I hope it’s also conveying my favourite modern, crisp quilt style with bold accents of vivid fuschia combined with cool greys.  I also happened to listen to one of Chopin’s mazurkas when I was quilting all those straight stylised lines!
