On Basic Black

12” X 16”

2014

Statement: I had a very difficult time creating a piece for “It’s Time for Colour”. After several failed attempts I decided I just needed to set it aside and play for a while. I had some leftover blocks that I slashed and sewed, rearranged and repeated. It was a very freeing experience and when I was finished I was excited to see the interplay of the colours. All it needed now was some basic black to set it off.

Materials/Techniques: machine pieced and quilted.

I was honoured to be asked to contribute a quilt to the CQA/ACC Invitational travelling quilt show “It’s Time for Colour”. The quilts were available to purchase and the funds went to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.
