This quilt took three tries over 11 years to finally get it right.
The first try, I didn’t have the skill to make the pattern.
The second try, the pattern wasn’t bad, but I couldn’t find the color.
The third try, I made the pattern, and color came to me easily.
Growth in me was good for both of us.
This quilt design is about the coming together of 2 people, and
the creative explosion that begins and spreads out into the
world from their joining. This is one of only a very few quilts
I’ve done consciously using a specific color theme. Here,
it is the double split compliment arising from the yellow/violet
compliment. These are my favorite colors in which to work, and play.
