Rooflines # 10: Mountain Village

Colleen Kole's avatar Colleen Kole

My composition, Rooflines #10: Mountain Village, is a contemporary art quilt. This series initially celebrated my fascination with the architecture of the Frederik Meijer Gardens here in Grand Rapids. It has recently evolved to encompass the sharp rooflines of the village homes nestled amongst the fir trees in the Green Mountains of Vermont. I have utilized my hand dyed fabrics as paint and the freehand cutting of shapes and lines to create this piece. Dense machine quilting will be added to define texture and add another dimension for the viewer to appreciate.
