The challenge is to use only three colors and keep the project under 35 x 50".
Here is my project:
Country Home pillow cover
pattern by Mihaela Alexandrescu (me)
17" x 17"
The first impulse was to express the theme through the colors: two complementary colors on the white background. But I liked too much how this warm green and navy blue looks together. Because they are both cold colors I expressed the complementarity in the way they participate to the layout: placing them symmetrically, facing each other.
When I designed the quilting I continued the theme, on the one hand, by alternating the straight lines with the curved lines and on the other hand, by alternating the surfaces with different quilting density.
The binding relaxes the whole composition. It gathers all the three colors but refuses the opposition. Even if it was also about attraction in there :) One corner is a little different than the others. No more symetry!
