Cindy Richard – Re-arranged

In this season, as the days grow shorter and the light lasts fewer hours each day, I am drawn to brighter colors. In my own way, I guess I find a way to surround myself with color and light.

I decided to use dark and super vivid colors for this piece. I surrounded the bright pinks and reds with dark blues, purple and black. I sewed strips to form traditional blocks and then I slashed them and reattached them in unexpected ways. I did not pay attention to the outcome, I just re-arranged the parts until I had a 15″ x 15″ finished block at the end.

This was the result.

    The strong colours are extremely effective. The re-arrangement has resulted in a composition with very strong lines and the quilting emphasizes the geometric shapes. The way Cindy trusted in her process paid off well.
