Color My World 2021 Block Of The Month Kit - Art History 101 Background
2021 Block of the Month
Join the Quilt Show Community to learn, laugh, and quilt in a 12-month experience where we will build this wonderfully unique quilt together one month at a time.
This beautiful quilt is constructed of soft and textural shot cottons from Windham fabrics on a richly patterned background. It offers so many opportunities for personalization through both embellishment and quilting- you could add house numbers, decorations, people, pets, garden flowers- there are so many ways to make this quilt truly your own!
Designer Wendy Williams says of Color My World,
"I travel the path of life as a quilter gathering impressions of the places I go to and all the details that bring those places to life. Here in Color My world, you can share my world travelling the roads through cities, neighbourhoods, and streets that are universal to us all.
I have chosen 4 iconic skyscrapers that represent the diversity of our world and have meanings and memories of our travels whether they are in real life or through images in photos.
I have created a round setting for the houses and buildings which is a theme that I keep revisiting. The round shape appeals to me in that it is representative of our world but also the design element of the curve softens the sharp lines that the houses and buildings create. The circle makes an interesting path for the eye to follow as it works its way around the quilt.
The roads add more repetition to the design which also adds a calming feature adding contrast to all the solid bright color. The mariner’s compass was a fitting inclusion in the centre and the cool lightness and brightness of the blue draws your attention to the centre and invites the eye to continue to explore."
Finished quilt measures approximately 69-1/2 inches square.
