Here's a quilt with plenty of color from Michelle Jackson. Here's what Michelle says about the quilt, "Adobe Sun Dance depicts an old adobe at Sky City on the Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico as the late afternoon sun dances through viegas onto the exposed adobe bricks.This dance is emphasized here through the unusual use of color. I worked around the color wheel starting with violet at the top and ending with yellow-green at the bottom. Notice how the sunlight color becomes the compliment of the color of the surrounding adobes."

The quilt is 40" x 32 and is made from 100% cotton fabrics using fused applique.  It has been shown at A World of Beauty 2006, PIQF 2008 and NM Fabrications, State Capital Rotunda Gallery, Santa Fe, NM.

Don't forget to head on over to Michelle's TQS Classroom beginning March 27, 2012 to see her lessons on color.
