Abstract Art Deco

Well, I did not think I was going to make it in time to post to the challenge. I didn't start this until Wednesday, because I really couldn't think of what to do. I did not want to submit an incomplete quilt. I looked online to see what could inspire me, but nothing did, so I threw in a little of this and a little of that and came up with my Abstract Art Deco Quilt. It measures 14" X 16" and I used only fabrics I already had in my stash. The fabrics were mainly Fairy Frost. It was my husband's idea to do the black and white border to look like an old film reel and I think it really added to the quilt. All comments and critiques welcome.

I think this fits the challenge very well. I like your soft colors surrounded by the black and white. Nice job!

This reminds me of alot of the art deco vases and other stand around decorations of the period. Fun colors!

Geometry and curves-perfect art deco! And I agree that the black and white border is just perfect. Love it!

Fun piece with great colors and your husband is a great consultant. Keep him.

This really evokes the art deco style to me. It does look like the front of a theater and your hubby was spot on suggesting the border treatment.
