Weekend Quilt

Here's the quilt I made this weekend for my Fortuna Fiber Artists' monthly challenge.  Since November the group has been working with different design elements and different color harmonies each month.

The challenge for February is to make a quilt using a split complimentary color scheme (I've used blue, red-orange and yellow-orange), and the design elements texture and balance.  The group had an "Ugly Fabric" white elephant exchange in December -- so an additional challenge for February is to use some of that "ugly" fabric we each went home with.  Both sections of fabric on the bottom of my quilt are part of the "ugly" fabric I had to work with.

I do like Triadic schemes, although they can be a challenge. Yours is very successful.

Such rich colors - I'll have to go look up 'triadic' & work out the relevence to quilts - we had 'triads' in a councelling skills class once, hmm.

Thanks, why do we who love color get drawn to neutrals so often!Maybe it rests our busy minds.
