Trio

Trio: Modern Quilt. This panel is yet another class sample for my Modern Quilt design class. I will be teaching this in 2 weeks so I am now collecting all my materials and class samples. The modern movement in art as well as the world of quilts has produced a more simplified composition for us to analyze. It is more about balance than intricate elements. As I said before, we are going on the premise that the use of at least 40% of negative space and the use of high saturation color will give a piece of art a more modern appearance. Although Modern Quilts as well as Modern Art can take many forms. Traditional patterns used in a Modern way can make a striking contrast in a show full of traditional art or quilts. In Trio, I have used a lot of vertical and horizontal balance to work against each other. I have also used the combination of the curved line against the straight line to create the best interest. Assemetrical balance is also a great way to create an artistic approach to your design. These are fun and simple to make. The circles have been fused, but the rest is pieced.
