While working on a wedding quilt for friends, the design went in two directions. This is the second direction. My inspiration was their wedding colors, teal and grey, and I began working from the “Score for Flying Geese” by Sherri Lynn Wood. I started by making two monochromatic teal flying geese (a traditional quilt form usually presented as a triangle with a wide base)) that weren’t improvisational, then iterated from there adding in other colors as needed. The design of the quilt finally felt really right when I decided to make it look like it was dipped in greyscale at the top and bottom, inspired by Sven Markelius’ work, Pythagoras (1952).
