Our theme was to choose colors that are a triad on the color wheel. I chose to use my own hand-dyed fabrics: plum, turquoise and orange.
Triadic Fruit 16" x 14"
Once I'd chosen the colors I realized I could do a bowl of plums and oranges. I dug into my batiks to find something that would coordinate for the bright spots or shadows depending on the object. Fabric selection is the funnest part for me when I'm making a quilt.
I was challenged by the limitations but I like the outcome. I would like to make more still-life pieces in other triadic color schemes.
I blogged a bit more about technique and materials on my blog.
