Color Study

Color Study is a recent
Treasures are waiting for us around every corner! Browsing an upscale local flea market, The French Door, with my friend Joan, I found this fabulously simple (and elegant) creation. Each of the rectangular centers appears to be silk–some are solid colors and some are multi-colored. This is a log cabin block variation, size 28″ x 32″. The rich black background makes the colors glow. The quilter attached a sleeve, but there is no clue about the maker (no label), except that she hand quilted it using a metallic thread. That woman spent many hours sewing this lovely piece. How did it end up here with a price tag of $9?

My own sewing has reached a roadblock. So I have this piece on my design wall. Different days I notice different vibrant color combinations that this talented quilter pulled together. I’ve named it Color Study and will sew a label on the back giving the date and location I found it once I can hand sew again. Color Study is a recent “found treasure” pieced with silk rectangles in the center of each 2 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ block. Maker unknown, but it now has an appreciative new home with me.
