As promised last week, here is a small group of quilts that use the green and blue analogous color plan to create their designs. Each is quite different in design and color use. I have featured a quilt by Margarete Steinhauer from Estes Park, Colorado and one by Jane Hall from Raleigh, North Carolina. I love both of their quilts and I hope you will too. There are two additional images in this post, both showing analogous colorings in this selected blue-green range. If you are a lover of blues and greens, perhaps you have made your own quilts with this color combination. It’s a beautiful color span to work with and it’s probably the most popular color combination. Enjoy!
Tsunami by Margarete Steinhauer, Estes Park, Colorado
In Tsunami, the subtle color changes appear to move from chartreuse to turquoise—–and perhaps a smattering of cerulean blue too. Besides the beautiful color blends, this is a masterpiece in design. Margarete’s use of line, direction, color, and texture make this a stunning design. Tsunami was created in 2006. It is 43″ x 41″. By the way, this quilt is featured on its own page in my new book Adventures in Design. I guess you can tell that I absolutely love this quilt! I am simply spellbound by it.
