Bill and I have long had an interest in choosing colors for our quilts that give the illusion of layer of color, one laid upon another. So we had to include one in Quilts Made Modern.
The effect of transparency happens where two colors appear to overlap. In the Transparency quilt shown above, the overlapping of the colors has a soft, ethereal quality. It’s a zen-like approach to color work that is about whispering more than shouting. When we were planning the photoshoot for this quilt, I really wanted this overhead shot with a mattress on the floor. It felt to me as though this mattress and little table were floating in the room. Just climb under those crisp white sheets and all of your worries will just melt away.
