Inspiration: The inspiration for this quilt came from the principles of design which states that proportion adds harmony and symmetry or balance among the parts of a design as a whole. When the principle of proportion is applied to a work of art it is usually in the relationship of size. That is, the size of one element as compared to the size of another related element within the same composition.
The technique of this quilt is similar to the Letter S quilt where I borrowed from the Japanese technique of Boro and Sashiko stitching. The elements of the design are circles and triangles, with a smaller square within the size of the quilt. The word “Proportion” was hand stitched along the long edge of the large triangle. I used fabric from the first quilt and added new colours in this quilt. I machine quilted around the outside edges of the quilt.
