Black and White...

...with a Twist was the theme for this Quilts on the Wall members challenge.  Happy to say that Linear Moves has been accepted!  This collection will debut at the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, July 26 - 29.  (My first time showing at the IQF!) The quilts will travel on to the Pennsylvania National in the fall, and to PIQF in 2013.

The requirements were:  Each piece to measure 54"H x 30" W in portrait orientation.  The quilts were to be black and white.  The “Twist” of color was not to exceed 10% of the total area of the quilt.  Grayscale was considered to be 'color'.

Reflecting on the theme immediately brought to my mind the graphic ink calligraphy often seen in Zen and other Buddhist traditions.  I have had the opportunity to work with variations of this meditative art form on paper, so capturing the essence of the brushwork and translating it to cloth became my challenge. As with Echo (see link from previous post), simplicity was a key element in the overall presentation.
