Shaded patchwork at the Festival of Quilts 2019

Today’s collection of pictures from the Festival of Quilts 2019 at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, shows some of the effecs that can be achieved when you use a wide range of colours within a very limited palette.

Most quilts depend on the cntrast between the “pattern” and the “background” fabrics, but here the colour gradually fades away, leaving the quilting to continue the design.

This effect certainly takes a lot of planning and will power!
