4119 - Circus  ($45)

Tuttle, OK    USA

Width: 8.5"   Length: 8.5"

Materials/Techniques: Black fabric with various bright colored scraps many of which are 1/4" squares. The center portion is lightly stuffed and pops up sort like a pillow with a square in the center.

Artist's Statement: The first samples I made eventually became the border, but then something was needed in the center, so the bright center was made from three different shades of each color. The inner border is flecked with color, gathering into a square at the corners. In each outer edge corner, the shapes and color from the center was continued. I'm afraid there was no set plan when I started except for a black and bright quilt, but I was pleased with the results. The first person to see it after it was finished, but still on the work table immediately said "Circus", hence the name.

Dedication: To everyone who likes the sharp contrast of the dark background and the brights. I hope it makes each of you feel good.
