Lisa’s two-color quilt has been juried into Quiltcon Presented by The Modern Quilt Guild in Nashville in February, 2019.
Gradation of line in this quilt creates pleasure for the eye. The strong contrast between the jewel and moss tones provides eye movement that implies curves, though you know the lines are straight. Side to side gradation, combined with the center to corner gradation create a medallion quilt that mimics Hawaiian applique. Lisa chose to quilt mostly straight lines so the quilting wouldn’t compete visually and the pieced lines remain the main course for your eye. Squinting your eyes at this quilt is fun, too.
Lisa sends a special thanks to the November 2018 QT Summit participants, “Your creativity inspired me to add the drunkard’s path blocks- real curves that sell the curves the gradations imply,”
