Red is the New Black

red-is-the-new-black

This quilt epitomizes my vision. The basic block is the drunkard’s path, compressed into circles and ¾ circles. This forced compression of the potential paths creates an explosive dynamic. As does the violation of the red by the light and dark greens.

This quilt is intentionally disorienting. It’s not centered; it’s not a typical layout; it’s not balanced. Fussy cutting and thoughtful piecing create very sensual rose-like blooms (the ¾ and full circles). Playing against this are the stripes and traditional patterns. The piano key border brings out a safe line for the highly emotional blooms.

This quilt is anything BUT basic black.
