Autumnal quilt

October 25, 2009

This is a quilt I like to have around when Fall comes.  The walls of my home change as the seasons come and pass. I find that the shades of this particular quilt blend in  well with the colours of my surroundings: yellow, ochre, brown, green, rust. It  seems to capture all the rays of a sun that has lost its Summer warmth.

The touch of these different materials is both soft and raw under your hands. The hand quilting adds a kind of uneven texture on materials that would normally be softer. Harmony in differences. I like it for the light it brings into the house and for the movement created by the various textures.camaieu detail

    I like your idea about changing the walls, I´m doing the same. The quilt is lovely with its golden colors, how nice that you have a golden autumn quilt ready, when the light decrease.
