RGB Modern, 2012, 72″ x 57″ –hand dyed and commercial solids, hand and machine pieced, hand quilted.
I considered the space between warp and weft when piecing these curves with bias cut strips. RGB Modern explores the additive color space of the screen. Improvisational process.
I began this quilt while I was teaching at Penland School of Craft in July 2011. It took quite a while to percolate. I completed it in August 2012, over a year later.
The seed of my composition came from this sketched pattern of the concentric rings within an onion. I used a bias strip curve piecing technique to sew the curved strips. The thing that kicked the composition to completion was a bit of scrap patchwork play that evolved into the diamond background. I was inspired, by many of you who were blogging about your scrapping process, to dig out my bag of hand-dyed scraps. Check out the composition process animation for RGB Modern.
