After completing the background of my abstract quilt, I was ready to tackle the primary motif. I used my sketch as the idea.
Next, I had to choose colors. I thought some red might be dynamic.
I used photo editing software to audition several different color options.
I wanted to play up the red (above) but the yellow provided so much contrast that I decided I needed to work with it in my planned focal point. Maybe this:
Or maybe I should drop the red altogether.
I decided to forge ahead with this arrangement.
Which meant auditioning red and yellow fabrics.
And eventually I got this.
Hmm. I liked it but it didn’t have the drama I expected. Did the shapes need to be wider? More experimentation would be needed.
