Rooflines 6

Colleen Kole's avatar Colleen Kole

My composition, Rooflines 6, is a contemporary art quilt. This Rooflines series celebrates my fascination with the architecture of the conservatory building at the Frederik Meijer Gardens here in Grand Rapids. The steel beams juxtaposed with the glass windows against the sky and the varying colors of nature contained within the conservatory building provide for a rich study of line, shape and color. I have utilized my hand dyed fabrics as my paint and the free hand cutting of shapes and lines to create this piece. Dense machine quilting adds texture and another dimension for the viewer to appreciate.
