For one of my City & Guilds exercises some time ago, I had to collect images showing complementary colors together. It wasn't ever anything I had consciously noticed, but as soon as I started looking, I saw wonderful pairings all around me.
I'm thinking that now that we're all going to start thinking about purple and yellow, we'll find examples all around us.
We are twelve quilt artists who embarked on an art challenge together. We're from different places throughout the world and our artistic styles vary, but we share a love of art quilting and a desire to play, experiment, learn, and grow.
For four years (2007-2011), we each made a 12x12 inch quilted art piece on a designated theme or palette. See our Theme Series and our Colorplay series.
For the 2012 Series, we changed things a bit and made rectangular pieces, 20x12 inches with roughly 10 weeks between each challenge. As before, we had a designated theme for each challenge.
We shared our process, progress, and results on this blog. It remains a key record of our rich collaboration.
