Light Work

LIGHT WORK makes me think of looking at old quilts, where the colors have faded away and you're left with a subtle color palette that still holds a power over the viewer. My own quilt, Cloudy Day, reflects this idea: quiet tones of a similar palette, with pops of color to draw your eye around the quilt. This collection features a wide range of low volume tones in modern graphic prints, just like shadows and layers of light contain many more colors than at first perceived. I wanted that variety for added interest, even in simpler quilt designs. I designed prints that I love to use, including:

  • Lucent, fun dots intermixed with swirly text for movement
  • Birdsong, inspired by a poem written by my husband, is a layered text print in a more organic arrangement - and you can never have enough text prints!
  • Dapple has splashes of color in a small scale.
  • Blur Plaid adds an edgy, shadowy woven look

All in all, a scrappy collection, making "LIGHT WORK" for the quilter. Enjoy the process, and let the fabrics work for you!
