Curating Colors for Patchwork Installation

An improv patchwork score begins by setting a few limits, including color limits. This is exactly what I’ve been pleasantly busy doing this past week.

I’ve been preparing for an improvisational installation and a series of FREE drop-in, ruler-free patchwork clinics at Adobe Books Backroom Gallery in San Francisco. Score For Floating Squares: Patterns, Limits, Systems opens September 6-27, 2015.

I’m so pleased to announce that Robert Kaufman Fabrics is sponsoring the project by providing over 50 yards of their luminous Kona Cotton Solids! Whoopee! So you can only imagine how deliciously difficult it was to pick 80 colors from the over 300 they have to choose from. I don’t think this was my final list but most of these made the cut.

And thank you…Kaufman Fabrics
