Challenge 57, Pam Clark



While researching Art Deco, I came across a stained glass window that I used as my inspiration for this quilt. The black, lavender, green and gold fabric I found in my stash had an Art Deco feel to it and I used it for my color scheme. I learned a lot about Art Deco from doing this challenge. Thank for inspiring us to research different art styles. I used both piecing and appliqué in this piece. It measures 13 x 19"

I really like the colors of this piece, and you are right, the feature fabric definitely has an art noveau/art deco air about it. The red triangular shape is interesting and draws my eye to the center of the work.

Interesting piece Pam. I wonder if you might consider rotating it 180? I tried it, and really like the effect of the 'plume' emerging from the 'heart'...what do you think?
